I am a heart attack survivor, when I had m heart attack I lost m job of 22 years. When I lost my job, I lost my medical! When I needed m health insurance the most it was lost and the paments to keep it were tripled, hard to pay if you don't have a job! The USA needs to have some kind of plan for the working guy, we are able to receive assistance because our disabilit payments are above the limit, but not enough to live on! What a wild ride its been....

In Canada we have hospital insurance and when we retired, my husband went on Blue Cross, but we no longer have dental, and we were advised not to go on a dental plan because what we want done would not be done for three years into the plan. I need some dental implants because I have no back teeth. I find it reprehensible that for you to get insurance, you have to pay an arm and a leg to get descent insurance, especially since you have a bad heart anyway and might have to pay more than someone who does not have that problem. Have you written to your congressman and asked if he or she would do something? That might help.
