Well the business everyone loves to hate, health insurance.  One more small concession, but not enough I’m afraid to suit all, self included.  The Wall Street Journal came up with a couple videos showing physicians and patients who are upset.  At the rate we are going, a Single Pay system could work it’s way in by default. 

It’s just one more algorithm in the world of business and risk management, but does it make a big enough difference and will doctors get paid at a decent rate without all the administrative nightmares, and will patients be rid of the balance billings?  Doctors are now being forced to look at risk management more than good healthcare, and that’s not what most of them went to medical school for, and not the reasons we consult them for our illnesses either.  That is the part of healthcare that everyone hates, not knowing what will be paid, so Forest Gump still lives, “insurance is like a box of chocolates, you just never know what you are going to get.”  BD 

Women are now often charged more than men in the individual market, but officials from America's Health Insurance Plans say that should not be done any longer if all Americans are required to get coverage.

The proposal came as the Senate Finance Committee convened a round-table on covering the uninsured. The industry has previously offered to stop charging more to sick people.
