Re: Hopalong and Insurance Issues

In America, the poor, and low income people are covered by [B]Medicaid[/B]. This covers all expenses including medication. The wealthy people can afford to pay high insurance premiums and don’t have to worry about anything, and the elderly and those who are disabled have [B]Medicare[/B] which covers most or all medical costs but not all medications. It is the middle class citizens who suffer the most. They have their insurance provided by their employers- most of the time or they can purchase it on their own. There are hundreds of policies to choose from. And they can be very expensive. I am all for National Coverage- but not all Americans agree with that. In fact, the Republican Party is desparately fighting this. There’s both pro’s and con’s on both sides of a National Health Care Plan. What’s the answer? I don’t know. What I do know is that I am currently paying $1,200.00 per month for my medication for my CIDP.
