A man I know was diagnosed with cancer. After 54 grueling hours of chemotherapy and all that goes with it, he was declared cancer free. However, either the cancer or the chemo affected his liver and he needs medication to deal with that. Unfortunately, the medication costs $14,000, and his insurance company has refused to pay for it. Now, he must look around for a way to pay for medication that could be life or death to him. Health insurance is for things like this. Think about this man should you be inclined to whine about not getting your birth control for "free."
