Health Care - insurance rates going up

I've been mulling this post over for about a year now.

I've been trying to find the right words to express what I'd like to say regarding the health care system, because it is broken. I also don't feel Obama Care is a fix to the problem, neither is a completely socialized health care approach.
Giving things away to people who don't work for it make the ones who do work less motivated.
There is a story...Henny Penny, do you all remember it?  She did all the work everyone else was to busy to plant and water and weed or even cook, but when the final product was finished everyone was hungry and they all wanted to share.  She did not offer them any since they had not helped.  I think this is a good story to remind ourselves that hard work produces results, and those who do the hard work should be the ones benefiting from those hours of labor. Not the free loaders.

But there is a high cost to think of, and we all have to have insurance.  Reading the Guest Post on InCyst today brought up my thoughts in Health Care again. Read here: Guest Blog in 2012 Resolve To Not...

Yesterday they brought around the changes to my insurance coverage, and you  know...they didn't ask me before making changes, they never do.  I have friends with Autistic children that need more help with Health care than I do, and I hear about their battles with insurance not covering things all the time.  Insurance companies do not care about your health, that is the bottom line. They are concerned about making money, as all companies are.  Maybe a pay as you go would help Dr's and patients alike, they could reduce their fees for a direct pay system, and we could get the help we need rather than the help that insurance allows.

So here it is, be healthy, find the things that bring you health, whether they are covered by insurance or not. Weight loss plans, work out routines, gyms, vitamins, supplements, diet, acupuncture etc these things can help your health and do not require pills and medicine opt to take care of you first and not have to fix damage caused by not taking care of yourself.  For the rest of it, those health issues that require health professionals keep at it, get the help you need.

By the way, if you  are not currently Leverage fans, this fight against the insurance company is the catalyst to the clever team of thieves who might be just be the good guys.

Original Air Date—7 December 2008
When Nathan Ford, a former insurance company investigator, is approached by a man asking him to help retrieve some stolen property, he is dubious. When he finds out that the job requires him to supervise and maintain control of three known thieves that he himself caught in the course of his insurance investigations, he's more than dubious. However, the job offers him the opportunity to get some of his own back from the insurance company that allowed his son to die, so he takes it despite his misgivings. When his doubts prove to be well-founded, he persuades his reluctant colleagues to unite once more to reach a more "equitable" settlement.
