It might be worth mentioning that some of us don't have insurance because we don't believe in running to the doctor for every little sniffle and ache.

Of course, I also equate "under-insured" with "over-priced." While I don't want to over-generalize, it seems like many doctors barely look at their patients and then prescribe a passel of drugs. For that, we're charged an arm and a leg, either directly or through taxes to support or approach universal health care.

There really is a huge middle ground between the "factory medicine" we're pushed through and the (pardon another generalization) hippie naturalists who have an irrational hatred of "chemicals." On that middle ground, insurance stops being an enormous luxury item and becomes a handy option.
