    Are there alternatives to having health insurance in USA.

    An elder has Medicare and his plan, call it ABC is giving her the run around. They say something in black-and-white and do something else.

    Now the elder escalated the issues to Medicare. A person at ABC is supposed to investigate any wrong-doing at ABC ---- do you think this person will report anything wrong about the company who is paying his salary?

    What alternatives are there to having health insurance. Is there a health saving plan the elder can enroll in? Or is it still mandatory to have health insurance?

    The alternative to health insurance in this country is to pay out of pocket for your medical needs.

    There are some group plans like Medi-share and some health discount cards but you have to look up the details and eligibility criteria and whether it will actually save you anything over having insurance.
