I'm a 39 year old white guy. I'm 6-0, 166 lbs, and have a cholesterol level of 127. I've been REJECTED for Castastrophic, consumer-driven HSA HDHPs with deductibles as high as $10,000. I jog around 12-15 miles/week and bike around 30 more(including 12 mile SLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOW ROLL DETROIT every week: the best weekly bike event in the nation). If somebody as healthy as me is getting rejected from the health insurance plan that CONs claim is the solution IN THE STATUS QUO, then our healthcare sys tem is broken beyond repair.
BTW, I haven't spent more than $10,000 on healthcare expenses COMBINED over the last 11+ years(last surgery was in 2001), so the for-profit insurers who rejected me, #$%$ away profits :)
You hit it on the head. He doesn't work. Spends all his time playing and recovering from self inflicted injuries expects others to pay for his insurance and med costs. Typical of the young and unemployed!! Keep your hand out and it will be filled with Obama $$.
Why should I be dependent on my employer for health insurance? Employer-based insurance IS THE PROBLEM(ESPECIALLY UNIONS, and I'm a DETROIT LIBERAL). So if you have a pre-existing condition, you have to get insurance from an employer? That's the CONSERATIVES solution. I guess that means I can't start a small business like your hero Joe the Plumber said he was.
what arent you telling us you are in relatively good health,you should be able to get pretty good ins on the cheap without obamacare,we were rejected for actual reasons and under obamacare we get zero break we aren rich ok but not rich
Why does it matter what I'm not telling you? NOBODY SHOULD BE REJECTED FROM A George W Bush GOP HSA HDHP. ****THEY ARE THE STATUS QUO SOLUTION OF THE GOP***** so NOBODY SHOULD EVER EVER EVER get rejected from a $10,000 deductible plan even if they have asthma, diabetes, high cholesterol, or hydrocephalus(my condition).
I know you were probably half-joking, but midtown Detroit is great. I'll walk around Midtown all hours of the day/night without worry, and I NEVER DRIVE in the city(do drive to some suburbs, bike to the close ones))I purchased my Condo LAST SUMMER for $48k CASH. An identical unit on the opposite end of the 4 unit building was sold 1 month ago for $129,500. That's the best investment I've ever made :)
