I have had no health insurance for most of my adult life. As a result I have had to take responisibility for my health.
This means educating myself about health issues. This means keeping my body healthy by knowing and listening to my body. This means doing whatever I can to avoid getting sick.
On the other hand I look at all my friends with health insurance. They all either have something wrong with them or are sick. They spend tons of time at the doctors or at the hospital taking tests for this or that. It makes me wonder….are they really sick? Or are they just being charged because they have health insurance and can be charged?
I had a melanoma once. I took care of it right away and it cost a total of $600 out of my own pocket. I’m guessing that if I had health insurance, it would have cost A LOT MORE $$$!
