Health care doesn’t

A friend of mine just informed me that Blue Cross only covers rehab courses if it is an emergency. They define an emergency as showing up to rehab intoxicated, meaning that if you want to send your drunk friend to the clinic you have to buy them a few rounds before dropping them off.
I think part of the reason why health care costs are so high is because so little effort is expended in preventative maintenance. I bet costs would go down if they started subsidizing gym membership.

  3. I would love subsidies for gym memberships. A gym membership here is between 80-150 a month, but you pay up front. Do you realize how much smack I need to sell to get that together?

  4. You think that’s bad? Do you realize how much smack I need to take in order to keep my svelte figure?

  5. I got an ad in the mail earlier this week from Kaiser (our HMO) offering discounts on fitness club memberships – part of their “thrive” campaign.
