About a month ago I had a sharp pain in my stomach , it was pain like I have never felt before, I was sure my appendix had exploded in my body:) So my wife drove me to the Brandon hospital emergency room. They took my blood, checked my blood pressure and did a cat scan, the doctor looked at the scan and told me I had a kidney stone, he gave me three prescriptions and sent me on my way. I was under their care for about an hour and a half. I saw the doctor for about 3 minutes top. I got the bill today!!! $22,000 freaking dollars!!!! Thank god I have good insurance.

My father was an Optometrist..... When you buy QUALITY glasses( read- not Wallyworld), your cost is 3-400, on the cheap end, up to 2-2500...... The frame is the costly part...... It can cost( for the clinic, between 30-300 bucks....) the lenses, are approx. 3-30 bucks each....... So, on the low end, the retailer pays 30-40 bucks, you pay, 3-900 bucks..... On the high end, the retailer pays 250-350 bucks, you pay 1500-2500...... Doesn't seem fair does it????????

I'll have to say I was impressed today. I'm real sick right now too and I went to the doctor today. They spent close to an hour with me for a cash pay cost of $75 (no insurance here).

Check your facts on the millions with healthcare. Millions have lost their insurance too because of Obamacare and the rest of the insured people are paying double, triple, quadruple or more than they were paying 8 years ago and it's not getting any better.

All I will say is I had insurance when Obama was put into office almost 8 years ago paying $300 a month. Over the next 5 years it went from $300 a month to $1500 a month which at the time was unaffordable to me so I had to drop the insurance. Now I have been paying cash for everything for the last 3 years and because I pay cash for myself I am penalized several thousand a year (still cheaper than insurance) all thanks to Obamacare.

I don't hate the man but his healthcare plan is bullshit.

I'll see if I can find some of the old bills but it's been several years since I dropped it.

Todd,Nevada decided that they didn't mind you paying more money, they voted against the designed subsidy to help make it affordable. They don't want you to like it. ..If you were in Cali it would be cheaper. It doesn't matter nobody's plan is going to work with all that sort of gouging being so wide spread and out in the open.

Ask TMF. How many O/O's have insurance? I bet it's less than half.
