    Stress is a major issue for humanity going forward. I believe the issue is when we look at stress in another individual, we tend to measure it by tasks that we see through our observations. We measure these tasks against our own and measure the stress level of another.

    Certainly this is the environment of comparison and measurement. However i think stress internally is a function of, not tasks but, the measuring stick we use to gauge ourselves in our environment.

    Everyday we walk out and hold up our stick and ask others to reflect our score. This is somewhat surprising when we consider that each of us is looking at the other from our own measuring stick.

    We are all asking the environment to be reflective. Maybe we are look to the wrong place to get our reflection.

    Is time for single payer and treat insurers as we do with defense and other government contractors. Also allowing Medicare to negotiate prices (they are prohibited from doing this and it is a source for the high cost of medicines and health care equipment), also to take care of the hedge funds who purchase large interest in the industry for them overnight increasing prices ten times fold. Also is time to stop fully subsidizing R&D for other wealthy nations.

    #12 The best model precedence for Servicing Contract Vendor is the Medicare Advantage or Medicare Plus programs (depending upon your state) - and they have been proven to run insolvent as well. I would direct you to the PacifiCare / Secure Horizons debacle of 1998-2001 Again - I was there for their clean up and audits - it was a MESS for fraud and service delivery.

    #12 IF it i SINGLE Payer - then there is no market for the insurance. It will be just like the VA. There is no coverage for wartime / combat injuries in Commercial Insurance - thus they are NOT in that market. VA is SINGLE Payer.
    IF John Hancock were a contractor - then they would be a servicing vendor ..... and their competition would also be servicing vendors.......and you would be in the same boat you are now. - You would have only reset the risk tables for a new contract - but the fail is still there. Still inevitable. Group Insurance / with Guranteed Issue / With no Limits on Pre-X nor LifeTime max is a budgetary nightmare and a model that has proven not to work.
    Hell, nearly every TPA self funded corporate plan with limited liability functions better.

    #9 I am a previously licensed Agent, Broker, Fraud Investigator and Patient Advocate with over 15 years industry experience. I am overseas launching international care models as proof of concept because America has too many laws and crony pay-offs that limit innovation, patient freedom and actual delivery of care.
    But yes - the girls are amazing.
    The VA is national - so if you moved for care deductibles Medicare / Medicaid - that was ObamaCare. completely different widget - a different shade of stupidity.
    PS - our models function across international borders, across currencies, and through foreign currency exchanges.
    We have the better models. Too Bad Nobody in America is LISTENING.

    #8 You are out of the country and chasing girls (not bad) and seeing things through that lens. In Florida, which did not accept the Medicare expansion funds, one may use Medicaid but the deductibles were very high. I move with relatives to Connecticut and literally saved my life, I was given 30 days to live if no treatment, that was 3 years ago. I am deeply sorry for the Vets, I come from military family with a couple hundred years serving tradition. The GOP has been cutting funds for the VA and obstructing Democrats efforts to increase funding. Also I think an injured soldier, even in non combat action, deserves full attention, as he served.

    #4 My personal story is that since my Deployment where I got injured wasn't officially a US Military Action - I have no claim - none. And because the PPACA is nothing more than the expansion of MEDICAID - which is not available to single males (depending upon your state) ObamaCare is also a worthless piece of shit - for eligibility and the premiums are prohibitively stupid. Why would I pay 875 a month to have a 6500 deductible to cover services I don't want , can't use,(hello Maternity Care) and cant afford under that mechanism?
    I wouldn't - I won't.
    Take a look at the Deficit doubled under Obama - large portions of that dumped into the PPACA - 7 years - Where are the improved outcomes, the skinnier patients, the healthier population? ..... love to see your stats - you know I have mine ready.

    #4 I have 2 Uncles, a Step Father and a Grandfather that were all run over by the system. As well as direct patient advocacy to Western Washington Vets for 5 years - with nothing but full stacks of fail to the tune of hundreds. It is a shit system, and if you don't know their bullshit paper work rules / access eligibility / disability matrix - you will never get care. most service members have no clue the hoops and red tape - they only know they they signed up to go die for their country and that the VA Machine treats them as a disposable useless cast offs when they come back. Just another fucking number. It is the moniker of State / Central / Universal Care & Single Payer.

    It sucked during Johnson / Vietnam and the Height of the 'Great Society' charade - and every democrat president since. Single Payer - has proven NOT to work - for DECADES.

    The VA has over a CENTURY of 'Single Payer' experience - and even for the small segment of population they service - they have failed for decades to provide care access, quality, innovation, Rx administration and effective case management.
    Ask a VET how much they love 'single payer from the government'
    Hint - it sucks, categorically, undeniably and systemically. And it is a black hole for Federal money that continues to deliver a shit ROI. It is more concerned about 'Lobby Art' over patient care and case management.

    Many of the married priests currently serving at the Catholic Church, come from the Episcopal Church, which has Apostolic Succession, ordain women as priests and has a social justice orientation. Originally, it was the Anglican Church in the USA and still is part of the Anglican Worldwide Conference, founded after Henry Vlll, who was named as protector of the faith by the pope and was later excommunicated after failing getting annulment of his marriage to Catherine of Aragon and later decapitating the most of his wives in search of a male heir. In the USA the bishops were sworn into loyalty to the King of England, not a very good thing in the newly formed country, and the Episcopal church emerged (many of its firsts priests were ordained in Scotland for Apostolic Succession as this became illegal in England). The liturgy is almost the same as in the Catholic Church and they consider themselves Catholic.
