When my mother was in the last few years of her life, there were many medical bills. She never really had to go to the doctor much at all until she reached her late seventies. I know for a fact that her wonderful medicare insurance policy paid off, and she had very little out-of-pocket medical expenditures. If you don’t have medicare insurance, then I would suggest checking and researching to find a good policy.
If you ever watched “Sicko,” then you’ll know that even with health insurance, getting sick is the number one reason people declare bankruptcy. It is a shame how one of the richest country (USA) in the world allows the health industry treats its people.
