Yesterday Bigfoot spouse learn Blue Cross change insurance rules. Begin 2012, no longer free ride after meet Out-of-Pocket maximum, now have copay for all prescription. Bigfoot like take opportunity hoard free drugs and needles, squirrel away as many as can before December 31. But it tricky.
Bigfoot realize Bubs spoiled with luxe, open bar access fancy no-see-needle lancet system and fancy fresh insulin on tap, but new ordinary insurance status feel cruddy.
Not get all political, but Blue Cross blame new rule on Obamacare, which make illegal charge copay ordinary customer for preventative care. Before recent change, Bigfoot family in superior category bubble away from ordinary customer who pay for annual physical. Now they not pay. Blue Cross decide make up for lost income this way: pop bubble, make all people pay for more shit. Result: torture darling skinny little diabetic children with cheap, visible-style needle lancet.
Take long view, this not real problem. If Bubs not like cheapie $10 copay lancet, Bigfoot pay-fancy lancet $40 copay. Bigfoot family survive. Still feel bad because realize footing insecure: maybe insurance take away more and more until boil syringe on stove and reuse like ancient times. If not like insurance rules, not as if have alternative. Once begin down deprivation road, pretty sure wind up on road Cormac McCarthy The Road.
Bigfoot realize lucky have affordable access health care. Realize posh-for-some insurance system not fair. However, Bigfoot more comfortable in unfair system with Bigfoot family near tip-top, not feel at ease in so-so system for all. This not match Bigfoot stated ideology. Bigfoot a total hypocrite. In addition learn Bigfoot hypocrite for health care policy, also become pro-death penalty after read about Penn State pedophile case.
