    that has chronic medical conditions.

    They would be better off getting a low paying job, living like paupers, maybe divorcing, so the sick one could get Medicaid.

    I so ashamed of this country for it's horrible for profit health care system, with too few doctors, and laughable billing rates for service.

    America is a laughing stock in the eyes of the world on this issue.

    It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.

      When I got cancer, my net salary was immediately reduced by my annual cap for 3 straight years. Nothing about that was fun, speaking strictly from the fiscal POV.
      USA! USA! USA!
      A family facing this, though, would probably want to invest in a Gold or Platinum Plan--obviously, if offered, and whichever plan runs the cheapest if one assumes the cap will be hit every year . . .
