    Now, even employers and the insurance companies are beginning to send people overseas for medical procedures, because even they realize the costs in the US are becoming unaffordable. Before long, that great plan that you get to choose from your employer will demand that many medical procedures be done in India, Thailand, Taiwan, Costa Rica, Singapore, or some country other than the US.

    Did you hear about Humana starting up their own airline services?
    You get a passport with your insurance card too ;)
