$100 million to cover 600,000 people. Anyone got a calculator?

Hello AB:

Yeah.. I got one.. It comes to $167 if everybody made a claim.. It's $333 if half of 'em do. It's $666 if a quarter get sick.. It's $1,600 for doctor visits if 10% of 'em need a doctor, and it's 10's of $1,000's if a few of 'em get really sick..

What?

Nice. So everyone gets one preventative care visit and then all the money is gone for follow up. Do you only pay $167 annually for your coverage?

You get a bottle of Tylenol and a cavity search. No coverage after that. Sound nice?

Cool. A few things...

1)If it's free, won't the rest with insurance drop their coverage?

2)If it costs more than $100 million, what then?

3)Where's NY getting $100 million to spend on it?

4)If NY has $100 million extra, what have they been doing with it all this time?

5)If they can't pay the doctors, then what? The doctors fit the bill? What a waste of 8 years of medical school....

Treating a few cancer patients will drain that cash pot within days.

I say we all head that way and get our one free visit before the tax paying New Yorkers get seen. Ya know...to get around that imperialist New York privilege...

"The premise is that it will be more cost-effective to give people regular medical care than to rely on hospital emergency rooms to treat serious health problems that could have been addressed at far less expense earlier."
