None of those were mine. My kid brother has had some issues. I even forgot about the collapsed lung ($6,000). His total=$21,700.
Let's see. I'm 29, so 11 years of working (air force brat so medical was free until I turned 18) with an average insurance payment of $250 per month x 12 months x 11 years= $33,000. I would still be better off just paying the bills as they come. I've done the math and that's why I don't have health insurance and why I'm very happy I don't pay really high taxes to give everyone free healthcare.
