You're lucky to have insurance. A dear friend who died last summer had been jerked around for several years by the county as he waited for a hip replacement. He had arthritis and was injured about five years ago, and was no longer able to afford his insurance. I know that between inadequate health care and the slowness of the public charity system he probably lost 30-40 years (he was 47).
