I would like to see something like tele-medicine that works internationally with local pharmacies. Why should I pay for an insurance plan I don't want to see doctors I can't afford? If I am an English speaker, I should be able to connect with any English-speaking physician in the world via a Skype-like system. And if they prescribe me medications, they should be sent to my pharmacy (and if my insurance or lack thereof makes it too expensive, have the system order the generics from India or Mexico). I think the health industry giants have already seen this coming, but your idea with "doctors, insurers, and the FDA" as arbitrary and overpaid gatekeepers jibed with me.
