Forum: Healthcare

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

  1. Let's discuss Congress' Healthcare Plan

    Be as snarky as you wish. If you'll be honest with yourself, you'll see that any claim that "nothing would change" is BS on the face of it. How can it be possible to pick up the health insurance tab on tens of millions, raise taxes only on "the rich" (aka "the employers"), quadruple gov't spending...

  4. U.S. vs UK

    A middle-aged man is sitting, head drooped, on a portable stool in the middle of the pavement, with a makeshift cardboard sign on a string around his neck. Since my arrival in the US, it's been such a common sight to see people – or "bums", as they are dismissively called here – begging that I...

  8. Shots against Chicken Pox

    CrazyGirl's MMR thread reminded me. When we first came to the states the doctors wanted to give both my kids shots against chicken pox, until I pointed out they had both had chicken pox and their bodies had built up their own immune system. How long has this been done is the USA? I have not be...

  17. Kids should get moving to avoid obesity

    NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Vigorous exercise may be an especially good way to keep kids lean, but sitting around, in and of itself, doesn't appear to have a major role in making them fat, new research shows.
