One of the sad thinngs about health insurance, is that most policies today are
expecting us to pay a 20% copay. I need back surgery badly, but can't
afford the copay. I don't make a lot of money and pay what I can for
health insurance, but a better policy simply isn't offered by my employer.
I agree that cancer insurance isn't needed. It would be nice to have
health insurance, but since so many are like me, and work at a small firm that
doesn't offer a plan, health coverage is beyond reach. At 53, my family is
one accident away from being homeless.
