PLUS GUARANTEED LIFETIME HEALTH CARE (albeit a plan that's not all it's cracked up to be.)

Albeit a plan that virtually s***ks unless you prefer the cattle call predominant in all forms of socialized medicine. I thank my lucky stars I had private insurance within which my two cancers were quickly and precisely diagonosed and treated. I'm fully eligible for both Tricare and VA medical, but I won't use either one due to the inordinate delays, hemming and hawing one must endure to receive any kind of definitive diagnoses. I dread the day when Medicare and Tricare for Life become my primary instead of secondary insurers. My experiences to date with those types of care tell me neither is good. Therefore, I'll continue to pay out-of-pocket for my private insurance even when it becomes the secondary payor of record.
