PRIVATE HEALTH COVERAGE IS health care for profit. If they did not make a profit, they would cease to exist. You reduce the cost of PHC, you reduce the benefits the holders and you reduce profit. In PHC you pay for what you get and what you do not get. It serves only those who can afford it. Affordable PHC for the poor dont exist. For instance, CINERGY HEALTH, who offers HC for as little as $6 a day. But what do you get for $6 a day? If the insurance company makes a profit, the holder loses. There are winners and losers and the holders are the losers. And if you get too sick, requiring too much care, the company will drop you like a hot potato. Medicare has never dropped anyone. And medicaid will only drop you if you no longer qualify. Government run healthcare has existed for many years in the form of Medicare, Medicaid, veterans clinics and hospitals and most recently CHIP. Government HC is the peoples healthcare, paid for by the people and used by the people. Private healthcare cannot compete with government run healthcare because government run healthcare dont have to make a profit to exist. It is paid for by the taxpayer,etc. Government cannot give people $12,000 to buy into private healthcare that will come up short changing people anyway. Government plan will work if the put more money, to cover more people into the already government healthcare. Paid for by the people taxes anyway. CINERGY HEALTH advertise as following; Healthcare as low as $6 a day, covers pre-existing, first day coverage, choose your doctor, free dental and prescription. Sounds too good to be true, but it does not say what you really get for $6 a day. .
