Health insurance and the paradox of choice
It’s that time of year again, when we get to change health
care plans. There’s nothing like spending
a day trying to figure out whether a 90/70 PPO plan with
a $500 deductible and 80% home health care is better
than a 90/70 Managed POS plan with a $750 deductible and
90% home health care benefit (not to mention the
Blue Shield and Aetna variants) to make you appreciate a
a one-size-fits all single payer plan.
But how does anyone make any money with that?
