If I want to see a doctor when I get a bad cough, I will pay for that out of my own pocket. However, if someone in my family suffers an injury or illness that requires extensive medical care, it is covered. It is also my choice as to what level of coverage, if any, that I chose. Therefore, if I don't have coverage and an event happens that is beyond my ability to pay, I would stand to loose all that I own to pay my debts.
