You don't get it. This is a Ponzi scheme. The government depends upon this to prop up Medicare/Medicaid spending. There is no relation between cost of care and reimbursement, which is decided simply by numbers and what someone thinks it should cost. All providers know this. So they have to make up the difference by charging private patients more money.

Don't blame us doctors.

Item: Senator Daines, Republican MT, announces 1.4 million dollar grant to Butte Community Federal Health center. This in addition to 1 million dollars a few months ago by Senator Tester. The Community health center sees all patients, not just Medicare/Medicaid/Indigent. As a result, in Butte MT, there are 75% fewer physicians in private practice than 10 years ago. The rest have left or are employed by hospital or Community Health Center.

Doctors pay taxes, have to work within a budget, etc. Not the Community Health Center, in which Federal Money is airdropped to subsidize the clinic even more.

Your solution is a non starter.
