>> Actually, high-deductible insurance plans with low monthly payments - that pay NOTHING for routine care and maintenance - are pretty common. They are what most people have. <<This is true. However, a fair number of high-deductible plans *do* pay for annual preventative exams with no co-pay or deductible applied. In fact, the legislation enabling HSAs explicitly allowed this exception to the high-deductible requirement.Agreed with the rest, though; insurance -- true "insurance" -- is generally designed to protect the policyholder from catastrophic loss, not minor routine expenses.#29
