Rationing health care is my great fear. I am 73, and about 1.5 years ago I had a knee replacement. I can hear the argument now: I was old, I could walk (but not exercise well) so a knee replacement was not "cost effective". And guess what? Now that I have had the knee replaced I can go to the gym, do 45 minutes on the exercise bike, and maybe that will make me live longer. That makes the knee replacement even less cost effective, since it may lengthen my life and who knows what medical bills will get paid if I live longer.
