    I can't imagine the nightmare of one going their entire lives and not having to worry about health insurance if they lose their job or have any kind of a preexisting condition. How do you guys stand it? How do you stand living a society where no one files for bankruptcy as a result of medical bills? It must be an absolute living hell for there for cancer patients to just get their treatment and not have to worry about going tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt. Oh the horror of it....
    I'm just glad we have the NHS, really. I'm not saying it doesn't have it's problems, but the fact that one can always receive a good standard of healthcare in the UK, regardless of income, social status or prior health status, makes me incredibly proud of our system.

    lol, no.
    The problem was you went to bat for a guy with conflicting positions,
    you were smart enough to abandon him though, i'll give you that much credit.

    Any honest reader will see what you tried to do. I'm perfectly confident in that. I would invite anyone to do so and decide for themselves (though I can't imagine why they'd care).

    But if you ever decide you want to ask an honest question, by all means, fire away.

    Yes.

    In this state an individual will pay premiums in excess of $400. a month for decent insurance. We have the guarantee issue law.

    For a family of 3, low deductible ($1500), low co-pay insurance, you will pay between $20,000 -$35,000 a year in premiums, depending on your age/ P.E. conditions. There is no such thing as low cost insurance, there are no options. There is virtually no competition. How does that sound to you? Where Maine goes, so goes the nation.

    I didn't ask if someone does. I ask if anyone HERE does. Do you?

    I don't care what you THINK it costs. I want to know what people here pay for Health insurance (not dental, not vision, not co-pays, not deductibles) if you are willing to share. Not what your Aunt or Uncle or granddad says they pay.

    I also wouldn't mind if you also inlcuded your state and age (nearest decade or half decade works)

    There were two very conflicting surveys. One said the average US insurance for a single person costs $4000+ a year. The other reported $2500. That is significantly different. Considering everyone i personally know doesn't pay anywhere close to $400 a month I'm inclined to believe one of the surveys was full of ****. So that is why I'm asking people here.

    I’m proud to say I am tightly attached to the government tit with my VA coverage and quite happy with it.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Re: How satisfied are you with your health insurance provider?

    I' m quite happy as my wife's employer offers a great plan and we pay about $80.00 a month with decent deductables.

    What I'm not happy with is my experience with Medi-Cal as they messed up some paperwork and now our case that should of been resolved in less than a few hours... is in it's second month. Medi-Cal mentioned that the case was archived and couldn't explain why, but will now re-open the case and will be e-mailed to the correct Medi-Cal office that should be handling our case and they have five business days to respond. They further advised that if the other Medi-Cal office does not contact us in five days, we are to contact them for support. Maybe they can send another e-mail??? The Medi-Cal worker that is handling the case that I wasn't able to talk with earlier in my inquiry about our case called me back and said that they have a back log of cases and will try to get to our case asap???

    I guess what I'm driving at here is that the State government is not that efficient and I can only imagine what government run health care would be like at the Fed Level. I'm surprised that people tolerate the long waits at the Medi-Cal office and incompetence that I described above, but I guess when it's the only thing available and free of charge if you qualify, then that is all you know and you come to love it and make excuses for incompetence because you aren't paying for it. I guess government run healthcare would be fantastic like our U.K. friends have advised on this thread.

    I guess I could complain and go to the office Medi-Cal office directly like I have been doing the last two years, because that is the only protocol that the State seems to follow, when you are in their face demanding answers, but I don't want to take a chance on this particular government worker who called me back which is a rarity and so I will put my hope in their ability to manage the case. Maybe I'll call in a month or so...I don't think a private system could do any better, or could it?

    Yeah but there so goddamn slow. Another example of a government running something ineffectively.
