Since everyone will be required by penalty of law to purchase health insurance, the lower cost premiums associated with HSA qualified High Deductible Health Plans are poised to be more popular than ever!

Stuart Browning has produced a short video series that shows the other side of the story: www.freemarketcure.com

Although there are many examples of our system not working correctly, we believe the current privately insured system can be fixed.  Health Savings Accounts, along with their qualified insurance plans, are showing tremendous promise in significantly reducing health insurance premiums and making quality health care affordable for millions of Americans that were previously uninsured.
