Performers…Get INSURANCE

I was originally going to make Kayden’s post a separate post for insurance and maybe I should have.  She makes a very valid point.

I know times are tough, they are tough for me as well but if there’s one thing that really frosts my balls it is when a porn chick has a health problem and starts begging for money.

Remember Elexis Monroe? Alexis Raven? Asia Carerra? (Self Proclaimed genius) They were too dumb to get health insurance so they are reduced to begging (or scamming as the case may be) from their fans.  They pissed away more money every month than a health insurance policy would have cost them.  For someone in their 20s right now you can get a decent policy for around 100.00 bucks a month.  Go to Anthem.com if you dont know where to start.

Mind you I am in my 50s and my health insurance is over 4 times that but guess what?  When I needed spinal surgery I wasn’t begging here or on twitter.  When I had sinus surgery I wasn’t on here begging.  yes insurance is a racket, but if you cant afford to pay for your healthcare out of pocket then get it.

At some point it would be nice if someone got together an affordable group policy for performers, someone honest, not Diane Duke and The FSC who will assuredly be taking money from it.

Maybe Lisa Ann, Charity Bangs and or LATATA could make this happen.  I like the idea of LATATA doing it because performers could set it up to be paid out of bookings maybe.

Anyway It needs to be done.

OK Thats my performer PSA O The Day.

    IT’s solid afvice no matter where you work whether its McDonalds, pump gas at Exxon, or work on a porn set. Problem is many young people have this mentality that they are invincible.

    I realize Obamacare is about as popular as a condom at a 50 man anal gangbang ….. but as someone who is self-employed and lives in one of the states that adopted the Affordable Care Act provisions in 2012, it will make obtaining health insurance easier and more affordable. It will not make it cheap. Health insurance is expensive, especially if it covers anything. But it’s now within reach of most individuals.

    BT I have to agree, Obamacare has made my insurance MUCH more affordable and they didnt exclude the spinal tumor or place me in a high risk pool. yes mine is expensive but its half what it was in 2008 with better coverage. Im not so much against obamacare as I am against the lobbying done by everyone associated with healthcare from Lawyers to Pharma, to doctors to insurance companies. All I want to say is where is the lobby for us poor schmucks? The citizens….

    When my state adopted the provisions of the affordable care back in 2012, my rates went up slightly – about $800 a year for a family plan. So, Michelle Bachman was right. But, my coverage became significantly better. One example, colonoscopies were now covered. Prior to that, they were considered an elective procedure – and in my town, a colonoscopy is about $5,000 if you have to pay retail. My wife’s annual physical and visit to the gyno is covered. And I went from no office co-pays to a $75 co-pay, from a $10,000 deductible to a $5,000 deductible. Four months later, my daughter had surgery – so my $800 in extra premiums saved me $5,000 in deductible. I think that’s a pretty good trade.

    The thing I found funniest about listening to the argument over Obamacare during the last election was hearing Michelle Bachman say: Under Obamacare, a family plan on the insurance exchange will cost $17,000 a year. That is going to bankrupt families.

    In my state, my high deductible family plan was $13,000 a year in premiums plus $7,450 into a medical savings account, or $20,450. A conventional BlueCross/BlueSheild plan is $26,000 a year. I’d run over my poor elderly mother to get that level of coverage for $17,000.
