I was hoping we'd have a thread about this.

Obama voters don't want it cheap, they want it free, so NO!

So Integris basically said they are charging people more money, to pay for those that can't pay.

Sounds fair.

And for the $4000 suits running around. Not to mention the Government bureaucracy-style management system.

It's almost like someone should pass a piece of legislation to drastically reduce the number of free-loaders.

That "someone" would be a person who hates women, children, minorities, poor people and kittens.

Instead of Obamacare/socialized medicine, the government should be offering incentives to expand on the free market principles at the Surgery Center of Oklahoma.

Don't you know that free markets are bad? They only help CEOs. Plus we all know that health care is a unique item that isn't subject to market effects. At least that's what my government told me.

They don't cover patients that can't afford the procedure is that right?

Don't worry... It'll get regulated in the near future.

So far the private healthcare industry has worked out great. Let's hear it for the free market everyone.

It appears as though they cover only people they know can pay. It looks as though they get paid in advance. The thing is that the company is helping the employee pay in the scenario given. Not all companies are like that. I'm all for this type of healthcare though. There is no reason why the hospitals should mark up the people who can pay because of other who can't. You really need to make $600 of of something that cost $1.75?

How many times did you hear the word efficiency in that video?

Key word for the healthcare industry, and something it lacks.

"We don't have administrators in three or four thousand dollar suits running around..."



Loved the segment, though.

This isn't kryptonite to Obamacare. It could have been an immunization against it. Here's the problem: Why don't all hospitals do this? (The answer - it's less profitable to do so).
