From a health standpoint, the major problem with the fee-for-service system of health care is that:
doctors' fees are too high.
doctors are not interested in their patients.
doctors waste too much time trying to collect their fees.
people are required to pay the doctor's fee before receiving any health services.
there is uneven geographic distribution of doctors and an overabundance of specialists.
