Here is a letter I recently sent to the Midland Daily News:
In a recent letter, Carol Buller states that “[p]remiums for individuals as well as out-of-pocket deductibles and co-payments are often significantly higher than those of people who get insurance through group plans. This is not equal-opportunity insurance” (Make affordable care a reality, September 29).
If receiving a discount on bulk purchases of insurance is considered a violation of equal-opportunity insurance, I may be in trouble! I recently purchased candy in bulk for this upcoming Halloween season at a significantly lower per unit cost than the kid who purchased a single candy bar in the next checkout lane. I am clearly in violation of equal-opportunity candy!
