Why are current health insurance premiums not deducted from universal health care cost estimates?
Just got back from the Target Clinic. Because we told her we were cash pay, she thought about tests before she decided whether they were worth it. IF it was all insurance paid for, she would have just ran every test. And THAT is why having consumers and doctors being responsible for their care costs would be cheaper in the long run.
Health premiums are a tax deduction but depends if you take standard deduction or itemize.
