In brief: Insurance used to

Cover everything, now they avoid risk.
A medical savings account usual secures pre-tax dollars to pay out of pocket costs: co-pays, deductibles, or if you are in favor of bearing your own risks, the billable costs. Most do not realize that the insurers cut deals to discount provider's cost. If you go at the bills alone, you pay full boat. You will have big costs of surveillance.
