The reason I ask is obviously someone pays for that coverage. So, it makes it interesting, and somewhat relevant to the topic of "what is being poor".

I worked for a company 25 years .My intent was to still be working there today .In 1996 there was a downsizing and they said "bye ,bye ,Henry43 ."I was given the option of free lifetime health insurance for my family if I opted to take early pension . Even though my wife was working and had a great job she had a lousy insurance plan .The plan I had was among the best available .Actually I recommended the plan to my employers in 1995 .I opted to take the reduced pension .I was also given free lifetime legal service and a life insurance policy at no cost .

Kuki: As of this day ,I "Henry43" do hereby say that I will endeavor not to "hijack" as you refer to it any threads on CM .
