Healthcare Reform rant #5

In response to someone's question:

The only choice employees have is in the case of big companies that provide options for more than one plan. They get to choose between the plans the employer offers. That's all. And most of us don't have that.

And the employers can change plans for any reason they want, and the changes can include lesser coverage. It can include a plan that uses different doctors which means people do have to change doctors. And you can change jobs which means you change insurance which means you may not have a plan that lets you go to the doctor of your choice.

There's no way to fix that and keep the free market for profit insurance system in which insurance has anything to do with your job. Which is just stupid system. Especially with the way Americans change jobs so often.
