13. Thank G-d I had health insurance in my twenties


I had a tooth go bad that lead to a major infection that put me in the hospital for ten days. Then I had gall bladder disease. The total costs of my hospitalizations and surgery was $40k in 1990. I ended up paying $3500 after insurance discounts. Any person that can afford health insurance and doesn't buy it is going to end up in bankruptcy court with just one hospitalization and if they get cancer they will simply just die.
