High Deducible Health Insurance - Would you buy it?

There has been a lot of discussion regarding healthcare reform in the news lately. Times are tough and many employers are scaling back benefits including insurance options. This brings me to my poll question this week:
Would you purchase health insurance from your employer if the only option was a $10,000 deductible?
This means the first $10,000 in any costs, including prescriptions are paid out of your pocket.
Your comments about health care and health care reform would interest me also.

God Bless America

God bless America.
We'll not forget that horrific day.
Dream kindly of the country you would like us become in the future.

RIP Robert Schimmel

I was so sad to hear about the death this week of comedian Robert Schimmel. He was one of the few comedians that made me laugh so hard I cried. He survived a heart attack and cancer. He died this week after a serious auto accident in the Phoenix / Scottsdale area.

I had the pleasure of seeing his show at the Tempe Improv. I had a good friend who was battling cancer. I sent him a book written by Mr. Schimmel titled "Cancer on $5 a day, not including chemo". He so made my friend laugh and it was so nice for him to read a book by another person going through cancer treatment.

Even though I did not know him personally I am so glad that I knew about him and had the opportunity to laugh at his jokes.

RIP Robert Schimmel - you will be missed.
