Sadly, I think that it shows just how bad things are getting. People are forced to cut their budgets to the bone and health insurance elimination is a gamble but it's also often around $250.00 a month for the employees share. That's big money never mind the $500.00 a year copay. So we risk and risk big just to stay on top of the bills. I visited the doctor recently and was told that I needed to go to this or that specialist. By the time I got the initial bill, I decided that I couldn't afford to have things taken care of at all.
