The following video on the German health care system is a must view, folks.

Take the 10 minutes and watch.

If not, study the charts.

The German system is completely private consisting of two plans: 1) SHI — Statutory Health Insurance — for those making under $60k per year, is made up of a highly regulated sector of competing not-for-profit private companies, and 2)  PHI – Private Health Insurance.

Upshot

Better healthcare at a lower cost.  Ich bin ein Berliner, baby!

You listening Amy, Mike, and Pete?
