How to Fix Healthcare

Recently I went to a health center to have both my ears flushed with a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and warm water.  One of my ears was pretty plugged.  I couldn't get it taken care of with the store-bought kit, but a nurse was able to get both sides working better than ever in about 15 minutes.

The bill was $251.  Yes, I have insurance that covered most of it (it cost me $60.)

This is a fairly high bill for something so quick and simple.  The solution is not better health insurance.  The solution is containing healthcare costs.  The best insurance plan in the world falls apart in the face of a $78,000 Band-Aid.

Well insurance companies have unlimited funds to pay any size bill AND these funds come out of the thin air.
NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT LOGIC. LET'S ALL GET OURSELVES COVERED. IT'S A BASIC HUMAN RIGHT.
