Caregiving:medical insurance premiums keep rising

Victoria Colliver of the San Francisco Chronicle ‘nails’ the issue:


“ … annual (health insurance) premium costs for the average family in 2007 still topped $12,100, or the equivalent of a new economy car …”


“… making coverage increasingly unaffordable for American families and businesses…”


Medical premiums keep rising far more than inflation


NOW one of these political candidates needs to ‘nail’ the solution.


Caregivingly Yours, Patrick Leer


  1. I was asked the last time I had to get a prescription why I didn't have Medicaide D which would of helped pay for it. My response was nothing is free. In order to have more coverage I would lose more money out of my disability check (which I really can't afford to lose). In the end I wouldn't win, I would still be paying for it one way or another.

  2. ..........we come close to that with medicare, because of our age and Jack's Parkinsons

  3. I don't they will even approach health insurance, Patrick. Insurance runs this country in one way or another. I am always astounded when I get my BC/BS statement after a doc visit.  The medical facility charges thousands of $$$, the accepted BC/BS rate is 1/2 of it and then, it's accepted as paid except for co-pay.
    I hate insurance companies... a necessary evil.
