passerine: Picture of Sparrow from Dykes to Watch For (Default)
[Crossposted to LJ and DW accounts.]

Since I used to work for a health insurance company, and I still work with Medicaid reimbursement rates, I know some people were interested in having me tackle this topic.

One important question in the "Health care debate" is as follows:

Are you looking at health care coverage, or at health insurance?

Universal coverage and universal insurance are not at all the same things, although theoretically universal insurance would be a way of getting to at least near-universal coverage.

This post is mostly looking at how financing a reformed but still "insurance-based" system would work, in my ideal framework. There's still plenty of stuff it doesn't fully address, both things I've thought of and things I haven't, so it's not as if I'm saying 100% yes this is what should be done. It's just the point I would start from.

Disclaimer: I haven't read all of the health care bill. However, I doubt very many people have. I just want to debunk some of the obvious nonsense that is going around.
