Tips in navigating the system

I found a most practical article yesterday, detailing options that average Americans are not aware of as they consider health care options. It is written by a doctor, who contributes to Breitbart.

Here are the headings, but read the details using this link to Eight Ways to Opt Out of Obamacare. I'll hazard a guess that you, like the average Americans including myself, are not aware of all these options let alone what they mean.

1. Join a health care sharing ministry
2. Purchase a short-term health insurance policy
3. Buy alternative insurance plans
4. Visit cash-only doctors and retail health clinics for primary care.
5. Sign up for a telemedicine service
6. Use generic prescription drugs whenever possible, and compare prices between pharmacies.
7. For surgery, Parnell recommends going to a facility that offers up-front “package” prices for self-pay patients
8. When a hospital visit becomes necessary, Parnell suggests working with amedical bill negotiation service
