My wife and I, who are in the health care profession, were discussing how we recently had a rash of patients who did not have health insurance and the complications and limitations in choices it presented those patients. My wife concluded by saying to our 12 year old son with diabetes that when he became an adult he didn't have the "luxury" of not having health insurance because without it he would have trouble affording all his insulin supplies which could have a drastic effect on his life. Without skipping a beat he responded, "But the good news is that I just saved a bundle on my car insurance with Geico!"
