I pondered that same question last night. I thought to myself....the #1 threat to my financial well being is a car accident. So I could up my auto policy coverage for major medical in case of car accident and drop my medical insurance. I could pay for any medical needs, broken bones, slashed fingers, and my own neurological condition out of pocket.
When I brought this up to my husband he had a look of absolute terror on his face. He doesn't approve of home birthing....that was a nine month test of wills. He doesn't believe in homeschooling. He just wants to be like everyone else. I am horribly independent and balk at anything that feels like coercion or control.
I'll work on him and see if I can opt out of this disgusting system.
