Now why not simply go to the lab for the $50.00 blood test, if there is something abnormal THEN go and see the doctor, otherwise simply renew the prescription. It is still more expensive then just letting my brother choose when to see the doctor about the medication, but honestly.

Galenical, Milton Friedman was simply pointing out that if you wanted costs to come down the removal of licensing is one method of doing so. You do not need 'state' licensing. Create a private enterprise that licenses healthcare professionals, why does it have to be the state? Look this is how dumb the currents system is. My brother is on Meds to reduce cholesterol. Costs $60.00 a year ( $5.00 per month ) in order to keep the prescription up he has to see a doctor every 6 months. He has to have labs every 6 months. Every time he goes in the doctor simply says, looks good see you in 6 months. So to get a prescription that is fairly benign, he is shelling out $600.00 in Doctor/lab fees a year for a $60.00 prescription.
