Here’s an interesting factoid: no insurer offers a policy on the individual market in Texas that covers MD Anderson.

I find that fascinating in a ghoulish sort of way — like what did the underwriters see in the cancer world that made them want to exclude Texas.

To be clear one can buy an individual policy in any other state that covers MD Anderson.

I know this because my friends’ brain cancer appears to thrive on chemo. They are in experimental trial neverland, and, naturally, being Texas residents they thought of MD Anderson. Well, think again!

They are going on a cash basis. The first appointment is $1700 then to proceed they pay $17,000.

I blame the GOP.


Bidden or not bidden God is present.
