No one is purposing that we have a single payer plan for all---like Medicare. I think a government option would make the insurance companies more competitive. We would still have choices, as people do for their Medicare Supplemental Insurance, but those providing those choices would have to actively "court" their customers, instead of vice-a-versa. That's what competition means---the best possible menu of services, with the fewest restrictions, at the best possible price. As "hospital worker" probably knows, if Medicare doesn't think a test is justifyable, they decline to pay. The burden of proof-of-need is then shifted to the person who ordered it to be responsible for demonstrating need, as it should be. This is not rocket science.
