That sounds like an awesome plan! We were so fortunate and blessed with the insurance we had when dd was diagnosed, it just stinks that they were more interested in making MORE money than helping clients.
We have a super wonderful fantastic primary (who happens to be my OB) that is concerned with patient care and has only charged about 30% for cash patients. DDs oncologist never charged us for when we had to go in to have her NG tube replaced every week when she would rip it out.
I think these reasons are why we are ok with not having insurance for our family that are typical people who rarely get sick. If we weren't blessed to have such wonderful Drs and if we had a great insurance plan we may feel differently.
I lift my eyes unto the hills, Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, The Maker of Heaven and Earth. And I'll praise You in this storm and I will lift my hands, For You are who You are no matter where I am, And every tear I've cried You hold in Your hand, You never left my side and though my heart is torn, I will praise You in this storm
