Caught my eye----
I ran into a convenience store today to pick up a bottle of water on my way to knitting group, and the headline on Friday's USA Today was something to the effect that the cost of private/individual health care policies is soaring. Terrific, especially with so many people out of work and trying to pay for health insurance, even under COBRA provisions. I know part of the new stimulus package is supposed to help with rising costs, but it still places a tremendous burden on the (former) worker who no longer has a steady source of income. Here's the link to the article, worth reading. We need to work hard to make the government and the insurance companies take a closer look at bioidentical hormones. As most of us who take them can attest, the amount spent on BHRT is far less than the cost of the chronic health conditions, medications, etc cost pre-balanced hormones.
