Insurance companies should seriously be pushed out of the picture with respect to health care. There is no need for a profit-seeking middle-man.

Medical decisions should not be dictated by corporations whose primary responsibility is the bottom line for shareholders rather than a person in need of medical treatment.

Hit the nail on the head!  I had a long talk about with a friend who's working on his MBA in Healthcare and is writing a paper on the rising cost of healthcare and the role insurance plays and wanted my input since I used to work with the crooks.  I sent him one article that proves your point and explains a huge part of the problem.  David Wichman, CEO of UnitedHealth Group, took home $83.2M in total compensation last year, they didn't pay him that for putting the patient's best interest first, they paid him for putting the bottom line first and he did a damn good job. 

Health insurance CEOs earned $342.6M in 2017
