If medical costs dropped to where they were affordable and got rid of all the administrative fat in the system, then of course insurance rates would drop and people would have more money to spend.
In the past few years, premium costs have destroyed discretionary spending and that is part of the reason retail is getting hammered.
Had my last surgery about 7 weeks ago and got my BC statement. The surgery cost about $15,000 and the negotiated rate paid was about $4,000.00. Just think if these real costs were posted everywhere forcing competition.
