    For primary care doctors, yes it is. Anyone who knows anything about it will tell you that the insurance companies are destroying the healthcare industry altogether. They are ruining the healthcare providers, the doctors, the patients, even the pharaceutical manufacturers. The insurance companies are absolutely ruining healthcare in the US. Nobody will stop them, because GE Healthcare is owned by a company whose CEO is on a "job-creating committee" for President Obama. GE also owns a major network, which politicians contribute to. The insurance companies lobby congress incessantly...meanwhile every other industrialized country in the world has government-provided healthcare. We're the only people who pay out of pocket for these high administrative costs. I know old people who are terrified of socialism after 70 years of indoctrination, so they don't want healthcare reform; yet when they need medical care, they go to Mexico (where they don't speak the language) and think nothing of it. It's a hot mess.
