Nobody tells you, when you purchase health insurance in America, that there's an extra "hidden premium": you're going to pay with *hours, indeed days* spent on the phone serving as go-between w/ insurance, hospitals, etc.
I'm basically an unpaid employee of The System.
For a moment, I was tempted to say "As a consultant, often paid hourly, I know how much this is costing me and it's painful."
But that's dumb. Everyone's time is valuable, for its own sake, and whether it converts to money is not the point.
This system robs from all Americans.
