Set medical funds aside

We hear about how everyone fears Obamacare. Yet I haven’t seen anything different in healthcare or the costs of both insurance as well as care. For example, insurance companies are still charging large premiums and/or requiring pre-approval for some surgery or some things just are not covered.

My wife had a job with benefits. She could keep the insurance for $600 or so a month. At $7,200 per year, that is a lot of preventive health care and doctor visits. But, even with insurance, we have community fund-raisers to help our friends and neighbors with their medical expenses.

Our government moves slow and most programs don’t help the people the programs were meant to help.

We need to set up a community medical fund at our banks and churches for emergency medical expenses. If everyone were to put in $15-$20 a month or more if they had a windfall, there would be a nice sum of money to help out others.

Who knows the day you may need help?
