I have an HSA with BCBS and it covers my whole family for $180 a month. I've never had any problems with it and my out-of-pockets have been consistently lower than I expected. Indeed I pay less now with my HSA than I paid with my employer-sponsored insurance!
For a single working person, an HSA plan would cost about $85/month. And most plans cover well visits, prescriptions, etc. They also have affordable dental options.
I don't understand why people think this doesn't exist. All you hear about on the news is how it costs "thousands" a month to get health insurance. No. That's how much it costs to get a "health maintenance plan"... not insurance.
Americans don't need "managed care". What we need is insurance against catastrophic illness. And it's available for a reasonable fee.
