That's not to say it isn't worth it to the individual receiving it. But to a socialized system, it's a cost the system works to control, not encourage.
I'm responding to the idea of creating a huge barrier to preventative care.
$2,500 deductibles for even preventable care is an insurmountable barrier for a lot (maybe even most) people.
Do you think insurance agencies don't know how to minimize their costs? Companies whose primary business function is cost and risk analysis of medical care are wrong?
