Forum: Healthcare

All items relating to Healthcare: Medical insurance, company policies, insurance coverage, policy costs, and more!

  1. Medicare For All (UHC)

    UHC (Universal Health Care) is not 'free health care'. The insurance industry and the media frame it that way, but that's a misrepresentation of facts. UHC (medicare for all) is everyone sharing the cost burden by raising taxes a little and saving the costs of premiums, deductibles, copays, and...

  2. Healthcare in the USA

    Well, this last few months have been an adventure. Mrs Lars finally had her long time heart issues catch up with her back in March. We ended up dealing with a severe Staph infection that caused her to need open-heart surgery, and eventually a pacemaker installed. Fortunately, I had...

  3. Government health recommendations

    The amount of bogus unsupportable "science" advice that government health departments have foisted on the public these last forty years is a disgrace.

  5. New health care benefits come at a price

    WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama's health care overhaul — now looking like a real possibility — should give uninsured Americans options they've never had before. But it won't be a free ride.

  9. Yes. Just one more on health / health care.

    As I have posted many health issues I have had over the past year, I have gone through many unnecessary procedures to find the cause.
