Another Crazy Health Insurance Idea

I heard on the radio about a woman down in Southern California who was looking for a husband in order to secure health insurance coverage. My first thought was, "Damn, why did Pete and I ever marry?" My second thought was, "Why the hell not?"

She has a chronic illness, not unlike lupus, and her COBRA runs out in a year. Of course, no health insurance company will provide her coverage 'cause they're all scumbags like that.

"Sure, we'll insure your healthy children. But only until they reach the age where they will actually need coverage."

"Sorry, we can't insure you because, you know, 40-somethings are usually worn hard and put away wet."

"Oh, you actually need insurance? Bwahahahaha."

So, here's hoping Terri Carlson finds her man. And here's hoping she's a huge financial drain on whatever health insurance company her future husband has. And, while I'm blue-skying, here's hoping each and every health insurance company executive in the U.S. comes down with C4 Complement Deficiency.

I love it! Maybe I need to find a sugar daddy and claim my current husband as a dependent. Hmmm...wonder if that could work?!

I have a friend who had to marry her husband to get access to his health insurance. They were engaged anyway, but she needed heart surgery so they pushed up the wedding so she would be on his insurance. Fortunately, the heart surgery went great and they have been happily married for about 15 years.

I wish all the health care execs and policy makers, etc., would come down with some condition and be in need of getting a new health insurance policy. Maybe then -probably ONLY then -they might understand the plight of so many in society today. One can hope that would work that way at least!

Medical insurance companies and I do not like each other. There is a special level in hell for them.
