Why not address the cost of services.
Is payment for services rendered also "the choice of the individual" or do we all pay for the uninsured freeloaders?
You're paying for insured freeloaders right now with Medicaid. People in my state that qualify for Medicaid don't pay a monthly premium, it is "given" to them for free! Are you concerned about these freeloaders?
The payment for services rendered for people without insurance should be set up by monthly payments, just like a car or house loan. This is if they can't afford to pay in full.
You still haven't addressed the enormous costs of these hospital services. Don't you think capitalism is better served for the Amazons, Walmarts, and car manufacturers of the world instead of for a dying patient?
