Can mutual aid societies / cooperative medicine work in today's economy?

Good Day, Professor Wolff, I am writing from Tampa, FL. The future of our healthcare situation in the US is of great concern. I have heard you often mention cooperative businesses. The mutual aid societies of Tampa during the earlier part of the 20th century helped many receive "cradle to grave" care. These were pretty much medical cooperatives. I am wondering if this is possibly a future solution to our healthcare economic crisis. Please watch this short video by the Honorable E.J. Salcines. I'd be very interested in hearing your thoughts on this. These societies took care of many of my ancestors in Tampa and I'm thinking if it worked then, could it work now? Thank you. Maria R., Tampa, FL
