I can't afford it after spending nearly everything I had on her nursing care when my health insurance expired after the company went belly up and I was under-employed.<quoted text>
AW, if you can afford it at all I would advise you getting one of those subs. They pay good. There is a guy that takes care of my mom's insurance that goes all over the state. He doesn't work for just one company. He will look at all the companies and find you the best and most reasonable for you. After that first 100 days Medicare pays of skilled nursing, my mom's insurance will cover another 200 days. And anything that Medicare pays on, it will cover all of what Medicare didn't pay, including deductibles. And don't forget the drug plan. My mom would be up the creek without it!
If it gets to where Medicare or the Veteran's don't take care of me; I will just croak and go be with Jesus and they can put on my stone "He enjoyed life while it lasted". I won't go to be a vegetable. I prefer the QUALITY of life over QUANTITY.
