[quote user="bansaw"]thanks guys, my dad passed 5 years ago this winter so it's all good...you know what I mean
AG let me ask. If you needed your apendix removed, how much would that cost you? Do you have to pay a deductible?

Bansaw... there are so many different plans, and many different providers,that it's hard to tell what anyone will pay. There are plans available through your job, or on your own. I have an individual plan for my wife and me that costs me over $1,000 per month. It was far less (about $250/mo.) when I had an employer with a group of 12. Anyways, last year my wife had lung and lymph cancer surgery. A 17 day hospital stay cost $110,000. Out of that I had to pay $2,000. When I worked at UniRoyal, a very large company at the time,it was no cost to the employee and that $110,000 would have been paid for 100%.</p>[/quote]
$12,000 a year in health insurance...wow
then add car, house and life insurance and they have a real good racket going on ... I highly doubt anything changes...too much $$$ involved in every angle.
but its better than leeches and a good bleeding

guess I had a little too much mead.. and I darted out in front of an
oxcart. It all happened so fast. They couldn't stop in time.
Theodoric of York: Well, you'll feel a lot better after a good bleeding
Drunkard: But I'm bleeding already!
Theodoric of York: Say, whos the barber here?
I haven't got a clue what removing my appendix would cost me. Eventhough it's useless I still want it. LOL...
But it's true, there are just so many plans, so many ways to slice it that there's no definitive cost that anyone can average out....
You also have to understand, and it is not talked about, is that part of the plan to push national healthcare plan is that if an employer chooses not to go with gov't (which Obama continues to always say is ok) the gov't will take note that you refuse their plan. By going against their plan, there is something in the bill that allows the gov't to audit your company as they please. To me that is intimidation, the bully factor. It's funny how he doesn't mention that part in his speeches...because it wouldn't sound so good... "As I've said all along, if you like your plan, you can keep it.....errr...but, we get to audit the hell out of your company....and of course...we'll find something wrong...wink wink...."
See, that doesn't sound so good....
There are most defiitley pro's and con's to BOTH sides of the argument.
