R collette it is always good to see the kids taking care of the parents. It is devasting to see first hand these parents that are just dropped off in nursing homes and left to live the rest of there lives. If you have ANY questions on insurance coverages with blue cross blue sheild just let me know. I'd be happy to help.

That's true.  My grandmother is in a home and the "roommates" never have visitors.  My mother goes everyday to help feed her dinner and is there twice a day on the weekends.  Mom tried to keep her in the house as long as possible, but it just got to be too much and mom is still working.  She does visit everyday.  It's more than I can say for a lot of people.

OK I left off in the middle of talking about Competitive bidding, In the long run it is going to save alot of money I think for everyone , it will be less confusing but it is also going to give 1 company a Monopoly. The trial testing is going to start first which will be in the Metro areas like Seattle and Tacoma. So the lowest bidder wins the prize and the headaches. Healthcare is expensive, but it is the people that make the products that set the prices. I avoid gouging also, there are some codes for items that don't have a set allowed at all. I only have to charge what is needed to stay afloat. I love working for Providence and believe whole heartily in there core Values which are: Compassion, Justice, Respect, Excellence, and Stewardship. and here is out Mission statement:

Providence Health System continues the healing ministry of Jesus in the world of today, with special concern for those who are poor and vulnerable. Working with others in a spirit of loving service, we strive to meet the health needs of people as they journey through life.

Just like any industry out there, there are always the good and then the bad.

wow some interesting thoughts on this topic.

I personally do not have any thoughts about social security for my retirement. I do not believe it is appropriate to anticipate being assisted by the public roles. Given my professional licenses, I am restricted from saying too much in this forum on this topic, so I will keep it short.

Slow, steady, long term investing in your retirement is truly the only way to secure your years of not working.

For the lucky or good ones that build a business to the extent it survives their working years and provides income beyond said date, there are different concerns and planning strategies, but for the average john or jane doe, the tortoise will beat the hare just about every time.
