what if the usa implemented universal catastrophic coverage, while outlawing all other health insurance, and forcing americans to pay out of pocket up to a percent of their income per year. maybe ten or fifteen percent of their income. we would naturally encourage Health Savings Accounts that already exist. we would also require as trump pushed, for all prices for health costs to be advertised up front. i would also consider coercing people to save in their health savings accounts every year and making their whole account fair game before coverage kicks in.
the good thing about this system is that it would pressure people not to abuse their access to healthcare, to save on their deductible. the lack of so much insurance and government blank checks for routine care would drive down costs, with the free market.
would conservatives here back this plan, why or why not? what about liberals, what's so bad about this plan?
