Medical Services Have To Be Paid By Insurance?

Oh, and I forgot the best point Friedman made to Kuttner. Friedman explained that medical insurance has largely not picked up dental coverage. Friedman says to Kuttner:

MF: ...in the case of medicine, I would really like to see, and I wish I were competent myself to do it myself, a comparative study between dentistry and medicine.

RK: But dentistry is peripheral. It’s a very small fraction of total health spending.

MF: A very small fraction with exactly the same kind of problems, and I would like to know whether there has been any less technological development in dentistry than there has been in medicine, whether costs have gone up anything like in medicine. They all have the same kind of problems. The key problem of medicine is third party payment. Nobody pays his own bills.

Meanwhile, as Kling is reminded (and so reminds me), laser eye surgery is outside of insurance coverage and the free market with its developing technology has brought down the cost while improving the technique over the past decade.

I agree completely. The next challenge though is to figure out just how to remove third parties from the process in a way that's not draconian.
