I choose to self insure. Until Obama Care kicks in it's still my choice not someone else's. If I need care I pay for it.
If I needed some kind of expensive surgery, Id go to some fancy doctor in another country with dynomite creditials who apprecites cash. The doctors in the U.S. charge too much and you can get care elsewhere.
I support you a 110% on that, as a small business owner we paid premiums that were beyond stupid, in addition they never paid claims for anything. When the bill collectors started calling we paid them to save our credit rating and gave the finger to US healthcare. We are now self funded, self insured, funny thing - its always interesting to see how much gets dropped of a bill when you have a handfull of "Franklins" and yes we have seen 50k procedures dropped to 18K is you pay cash same day.
