how much does your medical care cost?

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: You say if we drink a quart of green smoothie daily for $2.50 according to your calculations, that 12-15 servings of raw greens and fruit just might save us money on medical bills, thereby justifying the expense.

Answer: Thanks for this. I would like to know from anyone reading this, how much are your medical bills, annually or monthly?

I don’t have any medical bills so I honestly don’t know. I purchased medical insurance for myself after my divorce a year and a half ago, but I haven’t used it.

My son did require an x-ray and MRI recently when he threw out his pitching arm. (It was a rotator cuff sprain and bone bruise on the growth plate in the shoulder–he is out for 3-6 weeks.) And about 8 years ago my daughter was pushed off a slide and broke her arm. Besides that, we don’t go to doctors since massively changing our diet 15 years ago.

If your medical bills are low or nonexistent, because of lifestyle, say that please.

Those of you who know someone living the standard American lifestyle and diet, please let us know–what does it cost?

I am not asking about what medical care is for special circumstances. For instance, medical bills are $1 million annually for my friend with a hemophiliac son.

Just wondering what Americans are paying–out of pocket plus insurance.
