    more desirable providers will only be available under more expensive plans.

    More desirable could be for a wide range of reasons - some being potentially better healthcare, others a more pleasant experience:

    1) Beautiful and modern facilities instead of dated buildings
    2) "Known" for having the best doctors
    3) Private hospital rooms, while others have semi-private or 6 to a room.
    4) Minimal waiting for an appointment Vs weeks or months out, see a doctor within a few minutes of an appointment Vs waiting in the waiting room for extended periods.
    5) Doctors take their time talking to patients and understanding their situation, Vs focus on the reason for the visit.

    The difference could be similar to a Ford Fusion Vs a Mercedes S600.  Big difference in cost, both get you where you want to go in the same time, one more comfortable than the other, one allows oneself to think they are special.

    The most important way to protect the environment is not to have more than one child.
