    High deductible plan. I hear it’s expensive

    Take a class a semester at the local University. Student health care plans are very cheap and generally have excellent coverage since the customer pool is so healthy.

      What’s the point of fire then? Aren’t you beyond these problems now? If you have saved enough money to retire why being so cheap?

      Some people want to FIRE exactly because they would like to continue their education without the spectre of the need for a job over them.

    That’s a ridiculous rip-off, isn’t it?

      Dunno, but the relative ratio does look accurate to me across different countries.

  • Learn to use weeds and roots to brew herbal tea to cure your illness. You might make some extra money helping others.

    I'll hoping the US will have something figured out by the time I'm ready to FIRE. If not, I have Canadian citizenship to fall back on.

      The best of both worlds-earn in the US and retire in Canada.Why are you even considering retiring in the US?

      I like the weather. I'm actually considering Mexico too (wife has citizenship and I fucking love tacos).

    Start saving cash. Cash is king. When you're ready to leave the plantation buy catastrophic health insurance. Then, when non-cat health care expenses arise use the script attached.
