US healthcare is usually state defined by georgeha (4.00 / 2) #1 Thu Sep 28, 2017 at 09:32:39 AM EST
as in each state can decide what must or must not be covered in any health insurance plan offered.

For Obamacare, the individual states defined how it was implemented.

When Republicans offer solutions allowing health insurance companies to sell across state lines, they mean allow health insurance companies to sell policies that are different than what the state allows, usually less coverage. That's an instance where they don't believe in state's rights.

Canada is similar, the health care can differ between provinces.


I didn't know that for profit healthcare is banned by ambrosen (4.00 / 1) #2 Thu Sep 28, 2017 at 11:28:48 AM EST
It explains a lot, because I'd seen an awful lot of people assuming that in the UK we had to take what the NHS was giving us or die.

I don't think there's many places where for profit healthcare is banned outside the US, but I'm happy to be corrected.

I've been banging on about equilibrium for years.. by Metatone (4.00 / 1) #3 Wed Oct 04, 2017 at 03:37:04 AM EST
No accident the author is a physicist I suppose. It seems uncharitable to say "economists ignore questions about the validity of equilibrium because they are lazy" but really the other options are stupid or evil...
