How To Provide Health Care To All Americans For The Price Of Medicare. It’s All In The Prices – Forbes

The system, to keep things very simple indeed, essentially says that individuals will pay for their routine and regular health care themselves. Only catastrophic events will be covered by government run insurance. There’s a good outline of the system here. Tyler Cowen has a link to a (free!) book length treatment of the subject here. In slightly more detail, a certain portion of the wages of each person is put into a joint medical care/retirement account. Regular health care expenses are then paid out of this account: money that isn’t spent becomes available to pay a pension. Catastrophic care (being run over by a car, getting some hideous cancer) is paid for, subject to co-pays, through a compulsory and government run insurance scheme. What the system does is to divide out the assurance and the insurance parts. Given that people see the real market prices of that regular health care, they can actually see it bleeding from their pension accounts, they’re clearly motivated not to consume too much of that regular health care. Yet we’ve also got the risk sharing aspects of that insurance part. Most of us cannot afford to pay for the treatment for those rare and catastrophic events thus we are indeed using the societal insurance to cover those risks.
