Quote from: Solar on April 09, 2020, 06:11:05 AMI think you may be putting too much emphasis on insurance. If you're young, you really don't need insurance beyond a catastrophic plan, which is generally cheap.What a lot of people I know do, is create an health investment plan. They are tax free, and if needed you can go to a doctor and workout a payment plan for service, thereby cutting out the middleman, the insurance company, which charges exorbitant rates.Point is, you'll save thousands every year, and just pay a doctor visit for prescriptions etc. Think about it, you'll save thousands every year, more than enough to pay cash for a new car assuming nothing catastrophic happens, which you'll be insured for.If I was young, that would be the route I would go, save your money, you'll never recoup it paying out for something you'll seldom use.

They Are so expensive that I most defenitely wont be saving much money that way :P but at least the medication is avaliable in the US. In Norway the government has temporarily withdrawn it to reconsider if IT should be covered at all, so people cant get it at all anymore and maybe wont ever. They keep postponing their decison 🤷
