basically you have to have real medical insurance rather than the blanket pay-everything coverage that passes for "medical insurance" in most of the world

We have a "cafeteria style" medical plan where I work. You can select from ~15 different plans, from the "blanket pay everything including oil change" to a plan with a $1000 deductable per person, 85% coverage after $1000.

The 15 plans price range for a family of 4 is between ($6200 to $16000 per year).

So does $1000 deductable equal "real" medical insurance?

I wish they offered even higher deductables, but they don't yet, although they have provided more and more each year.

so if you have employer-provided medical insurance, you probably aren't eligible) but it's there.

So I want the Repubs to pass a medical savings account bill... without limitations.... unless I find I can use it.
