    you reach a certain number, say $5000.  If you are 35 and making $50,000 a year, for example, you have maybe a 1 in 20 or higher chance of getting to that $5000.  It's much, much, much more likely you'll end up financially better to pay one or two doctor's visits out of pocket and have really low premiums.  You'll take that 1 in 20 chance that you'll get bills adding up to $5000, because while that will make things hard for a while, while you pay that off, it won't be an economic catastrophe because you are covered above that.
