At present, the "health care" dollar is being divided among several actual industries.
(1) There's the pharmaceutical industry, which developes, produces, markets, and distributes drugs, immunization sera, etc. (Should we include diagnostic products like Piq's test stuff here, or in the next category?).
(2) There's the health care delivery system, which would include doctor/nurse/caregiver/support staff and their assorted offices, clinics, and hospitals.
(1) Insurance. All kinds, any kinds. Costs and benefits of this industry are arguable, but they treat no disease, avert no disease, prolong no lives, and improve nobody's health.
(2) Parasite lawyers. Again, costs and benefits of this industry are arguable, but there are no medical benefits associated with suing doctors, hospitals, or pharmaceutical houses.
It is my opinion that the dollars spent in "Other" are not properly health care expenses. They handle money and information, and a large part of the money they handle sticks to their own hands.
