On the REHP board, I get blasted everytime I post this strategy, usually by people with horrific health. If I planned on $1000 per month "do everything health insurance", I would have to work a lot longer.

In the last few years my wife was diagnosed with an inherited liver disorder which at some point may require her to have a transplant. I was diagnosed with an inherited genetic disorder which eventially will rob me of a major portion of my central vision. I have $3000 laser treatments on my retinas several times a year. My wife is currently participating in a clinical trial.

A healthy vegan lifestyle would not have prevented either condition from occurring. A healthy lifestyle is good, but it guarantees nothing. Perhaps you would refer to us as having "horrific" health. But, the day before we were diagnosed, we (like you) considered ourselves perfectly healthy. Good luck with your "plan". You may need it.
