Going back to “cash for services,” would be the one biggest, single change to effectively rein in the cost of healthcare.

Frankly, there has long been discussion that the only kind of health insurance should be these catastrophic type plans.

You don’t have car insurance to buy gas or get the oil changed.

Excellent idea. The costs of medical care only skyrocketed after insurance became common.

Some companies offer discount plans for people who wish to pre-pay for periodic maintenance; they get the guarantee of having the customer use them instead of someone else, and in exchange they charge the customer less than the normal retail rate. There's nothing inherently wrong with such plans--the only thing that's wrong is pretending they're "insurance".
