    I love that you've created a community around healthcare for artists and frankly, everyone.

    From a systems side, being able to track citizens through social security (as opposed to an infinite sampling of private insurer plans) would save a significant amount on administrative costs: http://www.pnhp.org/sites/default/files/docs/2012/Dollars%20and%20Sense.pdf

    It's an overlooked aspect, but freeing up money from administrative obligations could be poured into other health sectors.

    I look forward to seeing where the push for a single-payer health system goes in the coming moths. Thanks for this,

      I still think we'll be going between so many bureacratic systems in order to figure out our healthcare system. I worry about single-payer healthcare in America becoming less about our health, and more about policy/waiting to get seen by a doctor. It really depends on how insurance companies streamline things-- and if doctors accept the payments they'll be getting. I'm finding that a lot of my doctors are overcharging things so that insurance companies give them a certain amount of money- and then doctors decide whether or not they should bill me for the difference. Seems like a backward way to do things- and these extra steps slow healthcare down.
