30 cents on the dollar.

so how much cash is actually being wasted?
so if they take in 3 bill the make a litt under 1 bill,

less wages and shit. that's some profit margin.
aren't the americans incensed by the fact the insurance companies are making so much. (please don't quote the health care bill, this isn't about that. it's about the american public paying so much.) so as well as getting there 30 cents they also get all the interest on any money held in their account. which i would presume would be substantial. i just find it unbelievable.
they don't hold the money in their accounts,they do dodgy bizz with it,if it works out,more profit for them,if not,oh well it's not their money anyway,what a great way to do business

This is nothing knew at all and it pisses me off. The very second that private business gets involved with things of this nature you have to know that at some point the price will go up to a point that only the people in the upper income class will be able to afford it.
Same thing happens here in Canada with car insurance. The government made it illegal to drive with out insurance and at the same time did away with government unsatisfied judgment insurance which leaves every one at the mercy of the insurance companies. It's a crock and a setup.
i wonder how much profit they made.
i think this needed a double post.

surely the excerpt below can't be right?

if it is why do people still want private health insurance.
if you simply saved that amount each month you could pay for any health care you need on the spot. and most would even have a fair chunk left over when you die.

it's almost $22,ooo a year for god sake.
Under Anthem's proposal, a family of four could be charged up to $1,876 per month if the proposed rates are allowed to take effect in July.

The really scary thing is the insurance company's are pushing to make it mandatory for every person to buy it. You watch and see if it doesn't happen too. The insurance business is no more than a legal protection racket. The government no more than hired mussel. TMO

wouldn't it then make more sense to have a national health care service and remove the scandalous payments being charged? and evan with those rates you still won't get treatment for existing illnesses lmao.

how much do you pay in canada?

LOL, in Canada if you make under a certain amount of money(poverty line) you pay nothing for what sirvaces are left. They are slowly eroding the system, chipping away little by little with private health care in mind. The more money you make the more you pay in tax's. Seems fair but no matter how much you pay you still get the same eroded system of treatment. This makes blue cross a must at any price unless you take your chances that you won't get sick. I personally pay out over 8 thousand dollars a year for private and taxed medical coverage. Thats alot of money to pay out in a country that is supposed to have free coverage.

in the uk we say free national health service but it's really only free for the unemployed, you get deduction from your wage packet depending what you earn the same as you do there. and you can also go private if you've a mind to. that said i'd much sooner have the system we have their instead of the american system.
