Sick in America Part 5

My reflections:

Stossel talks about the Whole Foods model of health coverage. Yeah, the deductible is high. But employees get a fund to pay it out of so they can control it.

Some employees didn't like having to take responsibility, but 77% of the Whole Foods employee voted for the new plan. They accumulate HSA money that they can use for out-of-pocket expenses.

I love this idea and wish it would catch on.
