Re: [IP] contract with health care providers

Re Jim's idea of WELLNESS payments:

Theoretically, that's what we're doing when we (or our employers) pay
health insurance premiums, isn't it? And that's what capitation was all
about, wasn't it? 

When I was young, my employers paid thousands and thousands of dollars
for health insurance that I didn't use. Now that I'm older and have
become diabetic, I'm drawing on those amounts.

Not literally, of course -- different employer, different insurance
company -- but under a single-payer system, it WOULD literally be true!
