That's great info Chuck and I hope the surgery and recovery goes well. Due to the Medical
Industrial Complex in the USA, Americans are conditioned to believe that you must have health insurance
, which is Not health care
. And considering that the No1 cause of filing for bankrupsys is medical
bills, that damn well could be true....but....
Think outside the box. Once you are out of the USA and the System, medical care is affordable. Chucks shoulder surgery in the USA could be a financial death sentence....but outside the fiasco....do you really need insurance
for that? I say no....but then that's what insurance
is...a bet...a gamble, it was never intended to be the health care
The one good (or bad depending on point of view) thing I am seeing with Obamacare is that with the high deductables people have they are canceling office visits when they find out they have a big deducable that they first have to pay out of pocket before the insurance will pay a dime. This is what we need....people need to see the cost of care for it to have a chance of changing. They have catastrophic and in my opinion that is all they really need, but when they find out their real right now out of pocket costs of a visit, they are putting the clipboard on the counter and walking out of the office. Some can call that rationing or cruel....but in reality it is people waking up to what things really cost...then there is a chance for real "change" not just writing the already broken system into mandated law.
