I had dinner with my mother last night and we talked about health insurance. Between Medicare, extended care, and standard insurance for the kind of necessities required by a woman in her late eighties, her monthly costs exceed my monthly mortgage payment. There were several very knowledgable people in this conversation and they agreed that she has no alternative. As for me, I'm engaged in my yearly (and always futile) search for more affordable insurance, hopeful that someone's figured out a way to ease the financial burden. Silly me. It makes me want to hurry and reach age 65...imagine. Or move to a state that gives its residents a break. Sure isn't happening in CA, no matter what Arnie promises.
