Fee for Service: A Viable Health Care Alternative

Fee for service, especially when it involves your health care, has acquired a bad name.  "Why should somebody make money off of you being sick?" is the refrain from leftists when espousing their single-payer, government-controlled takeover of the United States health care economy.  They complain that we should be spending money on wellness, not giving money to those who act like parasites, feeding off the misfortune of others.  But "fee for service" may instead be one of the best ways to slow down our accelerating health care costs.

"one of the best ways to slow down our accelerating health care costs" might be to prosecute all the monopolistic market abuses that characterise "the United States health care economy".

Seems that most people who work at providing a service as their product would like
to be paid in exchange for that service. Whoda Thunk It?
