[quote][b]If [/b]you raised prices[/quote]More making up stuff. That wasn't a study about pricing. It appears you can't even comprehend what the study was [i]about[/i]. Or you're just grasping for a "winning" argument. I won't guess. [quote]I'll spell it out for you so you can't claim not to get...

[quote]Same difference.[/quote]Nope. It's a study of capacity. When wait times are 0, there is no lack of capacity. [quote]You REALLY didn't realize that economic rationing exists in the world, let alone this country? [/quote] :lol: You're making stuff up again. I never made such a claim. ...

re: Venezuela sets stage to force citizens to work the fields - Taxing Authority
[quote]Venezuela sets stage to force citizens to work the fields[/quote]Isn't it crazy that "take it from the rich" always ends up in forcing the masses into labor against their will. Force labor is the inevitable result of socialism. ...

re: Republicans will Try Again (and Fail Again) to Repeal the ACA - Taxing Authority
[quote]The government has a profit motive of sorts, too... Most can't break the bank on spending (unless you can print money, like the U.S. on its failed Medicare and Medicaid systems), so they start rationing care.[/quote]THIS! It's amazing to me people that think a single digit profit motive is co...

[quote]Quite frankly, you're wrong. [/quote] I'm ?? correct. Your inability to understand simple critical thought isn't proof I'm wrong. But it's cute you think so. [quote][b]If[/b] we're talking about rationing,[/quote]We aren't. We talking about wait times. [quote]we'd be remiss to ignore...

[quote]You also don't have any comment on the manuscript cited as to those in the US without insurance / funds to pay for a procedure who may forgo it, do you?[/quote]Nope. Quite frankly it's not relevant. If I ran a McDonalds, for example, I wouldn't care about the wait times at the drive thru ...

re: Republicans will Try Again (and Fail Again) to Repeal the ACA - Taxing Authority
Good grief. It's "elective" because of higher-standard divertive procedures, not because its patient chosen procedure. If you want to argue that delivery times are improved by using a lower standard of care... go right ahead. ...

[quote] Not surprising, for almost all cancers, US patients have less advanced disease at diagnosis than in Europe[/quote]See... it's stuff like this that makes the single variable (socialism) such a stupid analysis.

[quote]Not at all. The cost of providing the service might be higher than the reimbursement. The provider then makes up for it by raising prices on other procedures.[/quote]Na.

[quote]e.g., average insurance reimbursement for an AP/Lat CXR runs about $370. Medicare pays about $37, or 1/10th standard rate, for the same service. Both are based on an identical CPT code. [/quote]To the idiots... that just indicates that private providers are ripping everyone off by 10x. :lol: ...
