as is the MPD way, you are applying your own life's experiences to an all encompassing issue.

you have the provision to pay for your preferred health care option, but not everybody does.

and besides, if choice is such a vital facility for you, then you would presumably prefer the installation of a publicly funded care system; because then you have a choice of going to public hospitals or private ones!

but then you might argue that it is not fair that you are obliged to pay out twice. well death and taxes and all that..... not everybody who pays taxes have kids in school or use the local library or generate as much rubbish.... but that is the cost of a modern soceity.

social health = improved population health for ALL. simple.
