That isn't what I read, and also not reflected in the articles I already posted
You have to get the idea out of your head that there are these droves of healthy young people with money who go around uninsured and using the ER.
Well, thats not exactly my position, it is slightly more complicated.
If you read my posts from before, my goal is to get more healthy people into the insurance pool. A Huge part of the problem isn't (as yuou said) healthy people using the ER in droves....Its healthy people who DO NOT HAVE INSURANCE and therefore are not in the insurance pool.....then they join only later in life when they are older and sicker....****ing up the pool even more and not spending their healthy years in it
If we had everyone in the pool from birth, the spread would be maximum....
