I think if most folks just stood up and said they had cash in their pocket today....most doctors would drop the cost by fifty percent. The hassle with getting paid....taking weeks and weeks....isn’t business-smart. My doctor would submit the paperwork to my health insurance company, and it’d take a minimum of three weeks to be paid....sometimes, even eight weeks. Cutting the insurance company out, and the accountant hours....might be worth the money.

Actually, that's what I do. I have had medicare for 4 years but I pay my own doctor bills and buy my own prescriptions. As long as I can afford it I will do that.

I can remember what it was like before group insurance. Everything was a LOT cheaper. Maybe we should do away with insurance except for catastrophic insurance that picks up costs after it exceeds $5,000 per incident.
