Insurance companies are not happy about it. But the doctors seem to have found a way around the insurance companies 'contract', which requires ALL patients must be reported to the insurance company, and they cannot accept patients who have insurance but pay cash. I wonder why that is... *taps chin thoughtfully*

I like that idea too. In fact my old doctor years ago was a cash only doctor. Payments for tests were cheaper and so were the office visits.
Private insurers have no real stake in adequately covering the middle class person. Maybe they did once I don't know.
