I know that the go-to argument against moving to single payer health care in this country (for those of us who aren’t elderly, poor, or veterans, anyway) is “Do you really want the DMV handling your health insurance?”
After sitting through another benefits meeting, filled with acronyms and conditionals and seemingly arbitrary numbers, it doesn’t sound that bad compared to the situation we’ve got now. I’d give anything for a health care system as efficient and transparent as the DMV.
“Your family deductible is X per person, capped at three family members, while your HRA isn’t capped! But the HRA is only for medical, not other expenses like dental or vision, which have to come out of an FSA or an HSA that you’ve rolled over from a previous plan!”
