Re: Natural Limits to Healthcare Expense Growth?

Was listening to Rush a few days ago and he mentioned that Costco will begin offering group insurance to it's executive members. I think he said that they are starting out in S. Cal. I hope that offer it in Hawaii. This group insurance model is terrible for those who leave work very early.

Re: Natural Limits to Healthcare Expense Growth?

Last week took my 88 yr old Mom to the doc for her 5-10" face time, bp check, to get her annual prescription renewed - for which Medicare plus supp paid in full - 40 bucks or so.

In a couple weeks I will go to the same doc for the same thing - $95 cash to get my prescription renewed.

Now that's Bull Sperm anyway you spell it.

Makes my bp jump every time I think about it.
