Health care blues

Health care blues

It seems that there are no cost-savings to being healthy anymore. Last year, we received a health insurance packet with our 2017 monthly premium. It jumped 19% — over $100 per month for our family of three.

 

Now I’m left singing the “Health Care Blues,” to the tune of Elvis Presley’s “Blue Suede Shoes.”

 

Well, it’s one for the copay

Two for the nurse

Three for the doctor

Now open your purse

 

But don’t you

Belittle my health care blues

Well you can pay any fee

But don’t scoff at my health care blues

 

Well, you can get a shot, take an aspirin

Swallow your medicine with a big grin

Well, do any treatment that you want to do

But uh-uh, Congress, don’t pooh-pooh my blues

 

And don’t you

Belittle my health care blues

Well, you can pay any fee

But don’t scoff at my health care blues

 

Let’s go, doc!

Ah, pay the bill

 

You can take a pill, exercise

Eat all the veggies that you despise

Well, do any treatment that you want to do

But uh-uh, Congress, don’t pooh-pooh my blues

 

Rock it

Yeah

 

Well, it’s one for the copay

Two for the nurse

Three for the doctor

Now open your purse

 

But don’t you

Belittle my health care blues

Well you can pay any fee

But don’t scoff at my health care blues

 

Well, it’s blue, blue, health care blues

Blue, blue, health care blues, yeah!

Blue, blue, health care blues, Congress

Blue, blue, health care blues

Well, you can pay any fee

But don’t scoff at my health care blues

 

Happy belated birthday, Elvis.
