The lack of a national healthcare system costs millions in lost tax revenue

There has been some talk on Facebook about employers who underpay their employees being responsible for some people choosing to stay on unemployment benefits rather than returning to work. If you can make more money from unemployment benefits than from employment, why work? That says a lot more about employers than it says about their employees. 😠
But I haven't heard anything about a related problem: people who deliberately remain unemployed or underemployed because they can't afford to pay for their own healthcare and must carefully maintain their eligibility for Medicaid. This has been going on for years. Have I missed something, or, if not, why is no one talking about this?  
Been there, blogged that four years ago: A hidden cost of the lack of guaranteed health-care coverage

Thanks. There is so much wrong with our healthcare system and lack of affordable care for everyone
