Isn't your health care just mandatory health insurance?

Nobody is forced to buy insurance, however that option is always available to them. If say there was a serious accident, and the hurt individual didn't have health care because they've been paying taxes they could buy it after the fact and still be covered. This insurance wouldn't be so great that it would drive all the private insurance companies out of business. But it would be good enough to keep people from going broke should they require medical care. This program would replace medicare and medicad. 5% of the collected tax money will go to fund this. I don't think people will overly use and abuse the system. Let's face it nobody likes going to the doctor, but this health care program would help catch minor problems before they become major ones.


That's relaly shrewd! Good to see the logic set out so well.

Unfortunately, they do. Usually because they don't want to spend the money to keep up the insruance.If they have an accident, there are legal consequences for not having insruance. I think that this is why people sometimes leave the scene of the accident as well. That is why your insruance company has you paying for insruance against uninsured and underinsured drivers as well as for your own liability and other insruance. I've personally had my car hit several times by cars whose drivers have no insruance even though the state I live in requires them to. Every time my insruance company had to take the hit even though the crash wasn't my fault. .
