    I called Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield last month, to complain about our 30+ increase in premiums--even though we're HEALTHY & had filed no claims during the year, & listened to a 2 minute RECORDED apology--that the reason our health rates skyrocked--was because of the PHARMACUTICAL industry has been PUSHING all these new drugs upon us for the last several years.

    All's you need to do is watch T.V for one hour--& you have at least 3 sexual advertisements about some man who just can't do it without a pill. Then you'll have another adverstisment about some woman who urinates too much--so they have a pill for that--& then another advertisment about depression--or holy cow--it's gotten endless.

    WELL GUESS WHAT---You are paying for an OLD MAN--to have SEX now-a-days through higher premiums--:lol::lol: You're paying for people who believe they have "restless leg" syndrome through higher premimums. You're paying for people that have "depression" to get a pill to allieviate what-ever sypmtoms they may thing they have.


    THIS IS WHY MEDICAL INSURANCE RATES ARE NO LONGER AFFORDABLE--:cuckoo::cuckoo:


    When you have a baby boomer population--with millions of males--that need a pill to have sex--what in the "freak" did you think was going to happen--:lol::lol:

    that IS the Insurance business model.....the more people insured, such as yourself, that is healthy....the better financial spot they are in.... the healthy always pay for the sick's illnesses, no matter what they are....they are the middle man.

    I agree that PHARMA spends too much money advertising their drugs to the public, verses selling the Doctor on the drug because of its true beneficial qualities.

    Hey--just watch 1 nights worth of mainstream T.V. & FOLLOW the money.

    Men at 70 may want sex--but hey God & nature say NO--but science & our pharmacutical industry out of your wallet says YES.

    I personally agree with one comedian. At 79 years old--a man doesn't need a doctors prescription--he needs 3 women who say they want to F him--:lol::lol::lol:

    if the dude is over 65, medicare would be paying for the Viagra if it is still an approved drug.

    so, your insurance is not going up because of the senior's viagra, but your taxes would be paying for it, again....if approved.....

    I think Anthem is trying to raise their rates 20% here in maine, but the state stopped them and held them to a 10% increase and Anthmen is now suing the State for a bigger increase..... :(

    RLS feels like 'bees biting under my skin'...

    'My restless legs were like bees biting under my skin'
    25 December 2017 - For years, Mary Rose struggled to get off to sleep or to stay asleep, because she felt like she was being attacked by insects. "Imagine having a swarm of bees buzzing inside the skin of your legs, biting you," she says, describing the sensation that overwhelmed her. "It's really very, very painful."

    My first wife had restless leg syndrome, I whacked it off, problem solved and then we divorced shortly after.

    Viagra is only paid by certain insurance companies and some limit to 4 pills per month. Makes me think of "if you have an erection for 4 hours" see a doctor. Well, I think they should bring a busload of hookers in, who wants to go to a doctor and have them slice the underside of your ding dong?

    I get the generic Viagra, it's really cheap. It's called Mydixadryll. Ask for it at the pharmacy.

    No, that's not the "insurance business model". That's how group health insurance works. With real insurance, you pay based on how much risk there is that you'll get sick. People with a poor health history, or unhealthy lifestyles, pay more. Less risky customers pay less.
