Affordable. We only see a dr for well check ups and if necessary, a sick visit. We had to see a specialist this year b/c our son has to have tonsils and adenoids removed for speech. 30 co-pay there on top of 20 co-pay from his pediatrician. Our insurance will not cover a specialist unless referred by a primary dr. We owe the specialist 160 for the surgery and 800 to the hospital and anesthesia. Keep in mind our insurance is 80/20, my son will be doing this as an outpatient. IF we do not pay all this by December 10th, he has no surgery. But if he does not have the surgery, he can't start speech therapy and problems accumulate.

Free?? Nothing's free. Someone has to pay for everything. IMO, the Obama Administration should've gone after the pillaging insurance companies instead of just adding to the chaos. There should be regulations on the insurance co's that focus on what's best for patients/clients just as the food & drug administration regulates that corner of the market to protect consumers.

If you only had major medical insurance, and paid for everything else, then millions of people will be able to use that major medical,because millions will need it, since they probably will never have well visits, never get colonoscopies pap smears, mammograms. Who pays for medicine this way. They can use their major medical on chemo therapy instead of a pap smear. More reform is needed for cost, yes, but that isn't the answer.
