How are people able to afford all this?!
I just started Dialysis in November with what I thought was good private insurance, but now seeing the bills I wonder how anyone can afford to keep this up? The surgery to put the catheter in cost about 1500 after insurance, and now I've gotten bills for EPO (670.00) and Dialysis Outpatient/Home (1,500.00) and that was just for 1 week. The other bill for supplies said around 2,000. These plus the costs of all the meds is getting crazy! How are people able to afford all this?!

I'm married to a German citizen and we are seriously considering moving to Germany for healthcare as an option in dealing with the costs.
I was so disappointed by the failure of the public option for medical insurance last year. The United States doesn't even match so-called "third world" countries in providing health care for it's citizens.
