The procedures I would see as being optional to pay or not would not be life saving procedures. It would be vanity or questionable procedures which many normal insurance companies currently refuse to pay for even if you are insured.
There is a difference between covering universal health care and paying for any medical procedure just because someone wants to have it done.
