    Well, and I pointed out that those sources don't explain the variability in what men pay versus women in insurance.

    Healthier does mean less cost to the insurer... think about it man...

    If what you say is true.. then insurance companies should be charging that average boozing chain smoking man... LESS than the average non chain smoking boozing man.. right?

    If being healthier and living a healthier lifestyle does not contribute to lower medical costs... then why do insurance companies punish those insured that have less healthy lifestyles .. ie smoking, obesity and alcohol use...

    Please explain that... according to you.. the insurance companies should be telling people to smoke, drink and be as unhealthy as possible to lower their healthcare costs.

    Funny how the various issues of "gayness" jump up from time to time by opportunistic advocates. Now the gay partnership thingy is being floated as part of proposed immigration law overhaul. It would be ironic if immigration reform tanked because the scope got out of control. Witness:

    Of course. What shouldn't be 'affordable', meaning zero copay/deductible? Doc visits? Rx? PT? MRI? Surgery? Viagra? Breast augmentation? Chemo? Botox? Gastric bypass? Chiro? ER?

    Where you come up with "strawmanning" is beyond me...:doh

    You are making arguments all over the place.

    You have argued that the chain smoking man costs the insurance company less...

    so why do companies then penalize for chain smoking?

    If it costs them less if a man dies from chain smoking.. shouldn't they encourage it...


    You have stated that women use more healthcare visits.. but don't have better health.

    And then they cost more because they live longer...:nutz


    That was my point.. you say they are not healthier.. because look at their costs..

    Well, then if we use that argument.. a chain smoking man that has less costs.. is healthier...

    THAT is what you have argued...

    Thats the disconnect...

    Women use more healthcare and are not healthier...

    but in the next breath.. they are living longer..

    Men cost less because they use less healthcare.. the chain smoking man uses less healthcare because he dies.. and thats why men pay less in premiums...

    But we know that folks that smoke generally pay more in premiums than those that don't smoke...

    When you connect the dots.. you realize that the dots don't connect...

    There is more to it than simply.. women use more healthcare...


    Exaclty.. even though you know that the person used more healthcare than another person.. its entirely possible they SAVED MONEY..

    but.. you will believe unequivocally that a women using more visists costs more than if she did not.


    Exactly.. medicare doesn;t pay for long term care.

    exactly , major medical doesn't pay for long term care..
