Going to the doctor once a year seems like a lot.

I disagree.  Mayhaps though you do the thing where the person at Walgreens can write your a Rx?  I need to try that sometime.

Never heard of this.

Did this with the flu and my son last winter.  In and out in like 20 min and my insurance covered flu shots for the rest of the fam for free through the wallgreens/cvs/whatevs clinic thingy. 

wouldn't go there for anything serious, but it is great and cheap for the things that the doctor doesn't actually need to see you for.  Also, they are there in the evening and stuff.

sinus infection = decongestant + anti-biotic would be slam dunk for this?

Jesus... sound like a bunch of Poors.  $84?  LOL
Poor and cheap/smart are two separate things. Especially after having rocking benefits previously.

$85 per check is a lot for health insurance, how often are you paid?

 :dubious:

Not my fault my company's benefits are so much better than yours :dunno:

he didnt say it was $85 per check, he said the steroids are going to cost him $85
I think what my friend Mitch is trying to say is that true love is blind.

Just be happy you have insurance.  We have a 5k family ded which we have hit due to my pneumonia.  Here is just one of the claims from my hospital stay.  A $1500 deductible is nothing if you get really sick.  You'll be loving your insurance then.

Just become an illegal immigrant, I heard us taxpayers have to pay for every single healthcare cost to make sure they have the best coverage possible

My health care is 100% free for me and my entire family, no premiums, pretty good plan in my estimation.  For vision/dental for me and my wife I think I pay $12/month.  Benefit of working for a Scandinavian country with socialist values.

as is ours....fully paid family plan, dental, optical, $425 deductible for family per year, no copay.   I pay $13/pay period for a long term disability plan that is optional.

I think those arguments have some merit, but the Mormon guy in an entry level job with 6 kids and a wife on the plan isn't "paying" crap for his health care.

It's subsidized by you in that case.

you pay for your insurance

only in the sense that without benefits, I could potentially take a higher salary.   however, that is not an option here, and our insurance plan is a private self-insurance plan that is roughly half the cost of products on the open market.

Hopefully the United States will evolve to this point in a decade or so.  National healthcare, baby!
