The insurance company sent a summary of my healthcare expenses for 2016. Grand total for the year, $1338. All I did this year was two routine doctor's office visits, and one visit to the eye doctor. That's $446 per visit, each visit taking about an hour of my time and half an hour of the doctor's time. That's $14.86 per minute, $223 per hour. Anyone remember Brer Rabbit bragging that he was making a dollar a minute? That's cheap compared to medical care these days.
Totally routine visits, just checking up. I had no complaints, the doctor's scheduled the visits, twice a year for my general practitioner, once a year for my eye doctor.
God only knows what it would cost if there was actually anything wrong with me.
