  •  That's the case in our household (6+ / 0-)

    The pre-existing pool made such a huge difference. "Hallelujah, I can walk!" thanks to hip replacement. That work was done 2 years ago, and premiums continue to be paid.

    The result? Improved health and quality of life, probably longer life even. Next up will be cataract work. Both of these making the recipient of the service to be a better contributing member of society overall.

    The willingness to pay was always there. The problem was that no one would sell, just like you said. Big problems when, say, someone wanted to move between states to get a job.

    They keep talking about young, healthy people don't particularly want/need insurance. But that formulation doesn't make sense for a big part of the population called women of childbearing age, no matter whether they want to have a baby or are opting for contraception.

    Mark Twain: It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.

    •  i'm at the point myself where I'm trying to start (0+ / 0-)

      a campaign myself on the basis of what high heels do to women's feet to make the scream at their male suitors and stuff about what those damn things do to their legs and throw it in their face when they are like "I love you"

      You do? Well HUMANIZE me you .... ><
