The cost of health care continues to spiral out of control. I cringe when I get the annual envelope telling me how much my insurance will be for the upcoming year. I am a healthy individual, yet my insurance payments have escalated each year for as long as I can remember. I received an insert with my premium notice this year advising me to take advantage of the free health screenings that are available. Hmmm, was that a nice way to tell not to go to the doctor?
A recent survey, as reported in the August 15th Wall Street Journal noted that only about 58% of small businesses are offering health insurance and many are looking to drop coverage in the upcoming year.
Once we all dreamed of owning our homes, now many of us dream of affordable health care.
