Health Scare

Myself and 10 millions of my closest friends learned about a new wrinkle in our really-smart government’s newest health care law. Just a few months ago, my small company started providing Health Care Savings Accounts (HSAS). Because we can only afford catastrophic health coverage, the HSAS allows us to squirrel a little money away to pay for services should something happen to us. Let’s just say that our deductible is so high that it’s not likely that we’ll use our insurance unless we’re admitted into a hospital. Everything else, which is just about everything else, comes out of our pocket or our HSAS account.

Enter, The Government.  Now, to use money in our HSAS to get a simple Tylenol (and 15,000 other regular over the counter items) we need to make an appointment with a doctor, and get a prescription. I’m sure this will be cheaper than that that regressive old way of picking up over the counter medicines while grocery shopping. Does the extra fees go to the poor, the less fortunate, spreading the wealth around — NOPE, it goes to the doctor who gets paid to prescribe regular Tylenol.
A big thanks goes out to all those leaders in our government. I can’t wait for government-run health scare. It’s going to be the solution to all of our problems because our government tells us so and we must trust and obey those who control our life and our death.

In spite of having a deductible that is higher than several mortgage payments, I’ll take the old-way over the new-way any day. This is just the tip of the idiotic ice burg, I’m sure.
