Yes, it can be set higher. In fact, with our system, standard of care is determined on a case by case basis.

The best care I recieve is that which makes me healthy - I recieve this without having to pay large amounts of money.

The 'best' doctors are those who will care for a patient without thinking of fees, or other such nonsense.

Posting a list of links on Google is not providing a source, nor is it proving your point. You can't simply say 'here's the evidence, if you can find it'. If you want us to see proof, provide a direct link.

A Doctor's first, and only duty, is to care for the sick, no matter what their circumstances are, or who they are.

A doctor shouldn't care if the person they're caring for has no money to pay for treatment - anyone who enters the medical profession to make money has entered the wrong career.

Yes, it is your right to hold that opinion, however flawed we may think it is, but you should consider those who can't help themselves - such as the mentally or physically disabled. Do they deserve to die because it's impossible for them to help themselves?
