To access affordable health care through a health care cooperative proposed by the government, those requiring medical help are “assigned” a team of primary care practitioners. You have zero say in the matter.
If you can’t see a doctor right away, you see a nurse and that is also not negotiable. Keeping costs down for a health care cooperative run by an insurance company may mean cutting corners and not ordering the expensive tests, or not going the extra diagnostic mile. Deathly ill patients would not be a preference in a situation like that.
Furthermore, drugs and procedures, how medicine is practiced, and health insurance coverage decisions are made by the insurance company. So, Group Health isn’t really “group health,” it is an insurance company with a bottom line to stay in business and make money. Staying in business by cost cutting medical care is a scary idea.
