“…As I look to my role models, the current generation of physicians, it is easy to find myself questioning whether I am headed for the career of emotional fulfillment I have hoped for, or whether I’m destined for disappointment. In fact, finding a doctor who expresses optimism in the future of medicine can be a challenge in today’s environment. What are doctors more inclined to tell me about?” ~Jeff Mella, Medical Student, University of Texas, UTHSCSA
Health insurance is not meant to be used for routine expenses. Free market healthcare is about a cash based healthcare system. Consumers pay for routine medical costs out of pocket, aligning their incentives so they are naturally inclined to make the most efficient economic decisions. The only “single-payer” for routine care should be individual patients themselves.
“Ask any medical student, resident, or attending physician why they became a doctor, and nine times out of ten, you will get the same response: to take care of people. To take care of people. To take care of people. Not to make money, obtain social privilege, or add two more initials after their name.” ~Eric Sink, St. Louis University medical student
“Although it is feasible to obtain competent knowledge of policy through diligent study, facilitating transformative discourse takes delicate skill and much practice. The healthcare solutions we desire to implement will not occur unless we begin changing the hearts and minds of those who oppose us. I implore you to begin planting free market idea seeds now, so one day soon people across this great nation will reap the rewards.” ~Eric Sink, medical student, St. Louis University
