Good luck with that. We're in the process of looking for decent health insurance and ever since the new rules came in and companies have to cover certain things, the prices have gone through the roof. And heaven help you if you have a pre-existing condition to declare. It's gone insane.

You've been very lucky. Wouldn't you want proper insurance though in case that changes? Just for your peace of mind?

Everyone who has or had a serious illness hardly ever visited a doctor.
