Letter To The Editor: Council’s Action On Health Care

on November 17, 2018 - 5:58am
Los Alamos

This is a response to the County Council’s recent action on health care. I have a couple of chronic conditions that incur medical expenses that are about $3,000/month. Three years ago I didn’t have either of these problems, but when you get older medical issues can show up very quickly. Right now I have Medicare backed up by the Lab’s medical insurance. I don’t have co-pays or deductibles, so it works out well for me.

Since most people in Los Alamos do or did work at the lab, my health care benefits are pretty typical.
