I thought the no lifetime cap on coverage portion of the ACA act might be of particular interest to you if you have to undergo extensive and repeated chemo therapy as some of my friends have had to do.

Good Luck,


Thanks Poz. Was one of the few parts of Obamacare I felt positive about.

Had a heart attack 16 or so years ago and was in a coma for 10 days. That alone was around $120,000, then went to another hospital to get one of the first defibrilators in the area, the was another $50,000, the the batteries wore out on that (normal) in five or so years so another $50,000 , that one shorted out and was covered under warrantee, then five or so years later, the batteries wore out on the next one ... another $50,000 or so .... this one has at least another 4 years left on it.

Guess that answers why great insurance in necessary.
