Thrive without Obamacare

If you do not enroll in Obamacare, what options do you have to protect your health and pocketbook? Here are some solutions that put control back in your hands and allow you to decide how to spend your own money for the medical care you choose:
1) Purchase a very high-deductible, catastrophic medical insurance policy.

2) Use the savings in premiums every month to put money into your self-funded “medical expense savings account” that you control. Even if this account is not tax deductible, the fact that you control how you spend the money is what is critical to your health.

3) Consider joining a religious group cost-sharing program. Examples of these are Liberty Healthshare, Christian Care Medishare and Samaritan Ministries.

4) Seek out cash-pay medical practices, imaging centers and hospitals that offer discounts for cash – pay for services you choose, not for insurers’ promises, or denials, which are becoming more and more common.

5) Purchase a high-deductible international health insurance policy that for much lower premiums offers you the option of medical services in lower-cost countries such as Chile, Costa Rica, Panama, Mexico, Singapore, Thailand, India and others.

Abraham Lincoln said: “You can’t make a weak man strong by making a strong man weak.” That is exactly what Obamacare does: It weakens those who take responsibility for their health, forcing them into a one-size-fits-all wealth redistribution scheme that restricts care to government-approved choices at a government-dictated price.

At its core, Obamacare is about controlling you and limiting your choices for medical care and how you spend your money. Obamacare is not about “affordable care” or “patient protection.” When the government controls your health care, the bureaucrats and politicians decide what you get.

My prescription for good health: Take control of your medical care back into your own hands, in partnership with physicians of your choice.
