24. At my house a $50 co pay for a specialist really eats into the budget

add the cost of deductables and coinsurance, prescriptions etc. It does not take long to get to $100's of dollars in a month.

It's a better deal that what I had at the mercy of a single policy but I'm still paying for the middle man. Not to mention the headaches of comparing everything. I can handle the headaches at the moment but I know a lot of people who can't. Single payer, tax everyone and provide basic care would be better.
