How much medical care is optional?

To our good friends–

How much medical care is optional?

This seems a radical question, but not when you think it through. In some cases, plastic surgery such as a face lift, is clearly cosmetic only, and not medically necessary to sustain life, or even a quality life.

Today, there are people who have to choose between medicines and heating their home or starving.

So then, where are the lines to be drawn? Who is to draw them? As medical costs go up, we need to address these questions. Even more so, we need to figure out how to address them.
