Ahah, Ok...I´m one of those who prefers to go only when it´s really necessary. Why would you go to the family doctor 4 times a year if not ill?If I had the healthcare to provide for it, I'd be going to the family doctor at least 4 times a year, the dentist at least twice a year, and an eye doctor for at least once a year. I would go even more than that if there are any concerns.
Right, that´s correct.In that situation, it'll be working like social security and medicare as it is (or was until the healthcare law made it possible for people to stay on a parent's coverage until ~26) in the states. The only difference is that instead of having everything only apply to old people, the young can get healthcare. We'd see the real benefits as we grow older, but we'll still see the benefits as we are now.
Most of the healthcare laws (and even social programs) and bills we have in place are mostly directed to the old, the children, the poor or people with disabilities (going in that order of the greatest to least.) Most of the younger people our age aren't really missing out on anything if we included it or not because one of the least insured group is our group, the 18-30 year old people.
Well, in spite of what I said before, I would not like that...one of the basis of an insurance is the principe of "solidarity" i.e. we pool the resources together so that everyone can pay less. Maybe it would be OK to have a very small rise, but let´s also consider that older people have a higher income (maybe up to 50 yo), so they generally pay more nevertheless.I'd think a progressive tax as one person grows older (lower as one hits 18 and higher as once hits close to 65) would be appropriate in this situation.
