It would seem to me what healthcare providers charge for their services is more the issue than health insurance premiums. In 1990 I had one of the first MRI's preformed in this area. It cost $500.00 it was the only machine in the city. Today there are no less that 10 of these machines in the area it now cost $2500.00 minimum, explain that. It would seem more prudent to put controls on those type of cost for starters and if so would bring down the premiums. What bothers me is these health organizations invest large amounts of money into bricks and steel rather in reductions in service cost. Go figure. My dr. was complaining he had over a $500,000 invested in his office, my office call went from $35.00 to $70.00 the next week.
