1/ No one is happy with their health ‘insurance’ plan. No one. Those who say they are happy are confused. They conflate ‘happy with my plan’ with ‘happy with my doctors and hospitals in my plan’. But those are not the same things.
2/ When your job changes plans (as the majority do, every year, to save money), and you loose access to the same doctors and hospitals you had before, it’s not the ‘plan’ you liked, and now miss: it’s the doctors you liked - and now miss. That’s the issue. Do you see it, yet?
3/ For planned surgery, do you make sure that EVERY Dr and anesthesiologist that even looks at your chart takes your insurance? Are they ‘in network’? Do you still ‘like your plan’? And that’s work you must do BEFORE the ‘planned’ surgery. That doesn’t cover emergency surgeries.
4/ There’s a minefield of tricks insurance companies use to deny you care. To deny you access to the resources your health professionals need to save your life, because they don’t want to pay. They want the most profit possible. That’s the business model of the “plan you love“.
5/ A disease you develop in the future doesn’t have a doctor “in network“ that you want to see? Do you roll the dice, take your chances with the limited choices your “plan“ offers? Or do you bankrupt yourself to see the doctor of your choice so you can live? Still love your plan?
6/ So your plan doesn’t cover Rx drugs. Or dental & vision. And even if they do, at what extra cost? And how comprehensive was any of this even with the increased costs demanded by these immoral entities? How much of your 💵 do you have to lose every month for insufficient care?
7/ What if there was one “plan“? One that covered everything and every Doctor you would ever want to see? For any reason? Everything covered, from womb to tomb. Nothing denied if your doctor says it needs to get done. How can your “plan” compete with that? Can you see it, now?
8/ Every venture, no matter how big or small, needs the resources required to accomplish it. Healthcare is no different. Without the resources, it fails. And it takes 💵, the legal document used to acquire resources, to accomplish this. So “who pays“ is very important.
9/ If you leave it to a private corporation to pay the bills, resources will be starved, and people will die. It’s a simple as that. A for-profit corporation wants to keep dollars for it self. It does not want to spend them. So for-profit corporations cannot be in healthcare.
10/ If you leave it to municipalities and states, entities that do not create or control their own currencies, then resources will be starved. Even if the reason for the starvation is not due to greed, it will be starved due to lack of financial resources. And people will die.
11/ Only “expanded and improved“ #MedicareForAll, financed by the federal government, the only entity that creates its own currency, has complete monetary sovereignty, that needs no revenue or profit from its investments, can marshall the needed resources to accomplish its goals.
12/ The moral reasons for #SinglePayer #HealthCare are very clear and easy to understand. The difficulty lies in shedding the misinformation about how the economy functions that was forced onto you by an #Oligarchy that wants to keep you down for its own gain. #RiseUp #MMT
