KAT TIMPF (CO-HOST): We've kind of lost sight of what insurance should even mean. It should be insurance, in case something catastrophic happens, you can't pay for that. Now you can use it for like, weight loss training or something like that. So the prices keep rising and rising higher and higher. 


We should be paying for everyday health expenses out of pocket and the cost would be much lower. Plus the doctors would be held accountable to the patients, rather to the insurance company. Instead the idea is to use tax dollars to pay insurance companies more money and that's the conservative answer? I'm sorry but no.
