The root of the problem is to eliminate their need or ability to charge you $10 for that 5 cent aspirin.
Insurance is one of the main reasons costs have skyrocketed over the years. If insurance was never invented, costs would be reasonable for the everyday person to afford services.
Health and auto insurance are prime examples.
You want to intervene in what a private business freely charges? How are you even complaining about anything deemed "liberal" today?
Paying doctor's salary or perks to attract small pool. Government inflating tuition with federal money -> unlimited medical school debt -> demand more money
Patents on drugs, medical devices, etc to keep prices high i.e. drugs from Canada
Insurance pays any amount charged to them.
#3 goes away. Aspirin is $5 now; $300,000 hospital bill is now $150,000. Demand for hospital care is always high and the price will be as high as possible. The only way to get that price any lower is singlepayer and addressing everything else.
