Depends on your definition of efficient I guess. A well regulated, mandatory 3rd party payer system would be a lot more efficient than the current system.

Granted, an entirely government run system would be the most efficient and effective, based on statistical evidence, but in a lot of cases that is not feasible (certainly not in the US).

You know exactly what my point is A.Nonymous. Its that the US needs a universal healthcare system to improve outcomes and to make the economy more competitive.

EDIT: Also if money grew on trees there would be rampant inflation and probably thus more bankruptcy.
