Staff Reports

I would like to discuss a sensitive subject with you health insurance. I experienced this the hard way. Being self employed my health insurance tripled in one month and since I could not afford the increase I was forced to cancel my health insurance policy.When I became ill with double pneumonia this winter and was hospitalized for two months without insurance the medical bills for the hospital and ambulance service to Denver were significant.After the fact, I became informed about major medical insurance for catastrophic debts. To my surprise, it is cost effective. It might not cover ordinary bumps and bruises, but it will include a major medical emergency.I strongly suggest that all uninsured people look into it further. In the long run it will save them a lot of time, worry and expense.Jeff RobisonVail
