Why am I paying nearly $400 a month for health insurance if I have to pay $100 for a doctor visit?
Lately I've been very tempted to take a big risk and drop my health insurance for 3 months just to save an extra $1,100 - just because I think it's highway robbery to have to pay $388 a month for it. But they smacked down that little plan by announcing that they would no longer offer my "no deductible" plan. Those of us on the plan now can keep it as long as we stay on it. But if we drop it, even for a day, we can't get back onto it.
I think health insurance is like gambling away $388 a month at the casinos. You only win if you have a major illness or accident. Only that isn't really winning when you consider the larger picture. So health insurance is just a no-win situation all the way around.
