direct to consumer care.  cuts out middle man.  lets market forces work.  there was a doc on NY (i think) doing the same and the state tried to shut him down.  last i heard, he'd won and was staying open.  he had a menu of services with a fee for each.  patient picked what they wanted and only paid for that.  makes sense.  why should i be paying for maternity coverage?  i'd' just shoot myself!!
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
