My husband and I are currently spending $179.00/month to purchase health insurance through my employer and still have to pay a $4,000 deductible before anything is paid for. Because of this we never go to the doctor for preventative care because we know we will have to pay for it. If we had a single payer system that covered preventative care it would save money in the long-run, as people would get the care they needed when they needed it. I would be happy to pay into the single-payer system (and hopefully my employer could put the money they spend on my insurance toward it too) to actually have my care paid for without having to meet a high deductible. Please help us to achieve the single payer system in Vermont.
