This family predicament stinks.

But everyone must remember getting and paying for health care with insurance is voluntary. Accepting health insurance as payment is also voluntary. Both patients and the health care industry have gotten addicted to the insurance industry paying for health care. They have also gotten used to the employer taking a psuedo role of government when it comes to benefits.

This family's situation is proof that one health care law won't fix a health INSURANCE problem. There is not a health care or health insurance problem but a COST problem. That includes the treatment and payment for chronic conditions.

The problem is insurance was ment for A catastrophic event and not year round maintenance of a medical condition. The solution lies in creating a program/s for the chronically ill or those who need alot of healt care. But to expect a system to pay for year round health maintenance when it was intend for a single event is where the problem is.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
