Biness: shes pulling in at least100k a year.


I ask again: How do you know that? Did you just make up a number and claim its authoritative, or did you actually work on her books, audit her taxes, etc?

Biness: if we all take care of each other, no one will take care of themselves.

dittybopper: retarded: rmdpgh: This is obviously sad, but I'm curious - does porn pay so little that it's employees can't afford
health insurance, or pay for treatment themselves?

She was married - did she make enough to support two people in SF on one income, or did
hubby work, and not have benefits?

Working in such a high-risk industry, I'd expect nothing less than huge amounts of insurance
(AD&D, health care, term-life) would be the norm. The article also stated that she had several
other lines of work, too.

Maybe that's not the case, and it doesn't pay worth a shiat? Can anyone enlighten the masses?

Maybe I'm cynical, but while I doubt actors/actresses get hugely rich in porn, but basic health
care is out of their reach? I'm thinking that this unfortunate death is being used as a political
soapbox, more than an even half-hearted attempt at a eulogy.

Are you saying if you don't make enough money to purchase health insurance, you should get into a different line of work instead of doing what you like? That would be the opposite of freedom, yes?

I'm almost positive she made enough to get at least a catastrophic policy, which would have covered her.

Also, it's entirely possible that she could have afforded more comprehensive coverage, but because of her youth or other factors, she just didn't buy it. A quick check on ehealthinsurance.com shows a woman her age in SF could get health coverage for as little as $90 a month. Certainly it would have covered most of the cost of the treatment for her cancer. Even some of the really decent and more comprehensive plans, with lower deductibles and co-pays, were under $200 a month.


One of the things to be aware of, with an individual plan (as opposed to a group plan) they can raise the rates on you somewhat arbitrarily. So, if you are diagnosed with a chronic or life threatening disease, they can raise the rates through the roof.

In Texas, we have a risk pool that acts as insurer of last resort. For a fairly decent plan, for an individual 40 years old, it cost me about $430 a month for insurance.

so you're unfamiliar with basic logic, or, for example, what happened when the pilgrims landed.

Biness: cancer treatment is not basic.


You're right- it's freaking catastrophic. And while we could debate the merits of saving every possible life and curing every possible disease, and the resulting population increase/longevity/aging issues (taking it to absurd lengths), what I meant by the "basic need of society" is "health care" in total, not "basic health care", or "levels of care". Complete care.

Somebody upthread said it best when they said that it will never be fixed in the U.S. because we have a healthcare industry, not a system.

It's a shame, but it's also what people vote for because they are askeered of soshilizm.
People are idiots. And the people who should know better and fight against health coverage for political reasons, should all go out like this clown.

Yep. I'll never be able to wrap my head around the fact that so many people are against affordable or free healthcare. It's like being anti-air.

I understand this ideal. Some people stay on unemployment for so long because they can get paid to not work. I had a friend like that. Grew pot in his house and sold it under the table while collecting unemployment. Couldn't find a job in his field because they all required drug testing and he didn't want to stop smoking. Son, EVERYONE has to sacrifice something for work, be it time, pay, benefits, etc. why are you so special?

actually after the native americans bailed them out, they divided up the land, everyone had a quota to meet to pay off the financiers in england, and they got to keep/sell the excess, thus saving themselves, the colony, and creating American industry.

fark you. No matter what her occupation, she was still a human being.

Oh, and she was also a painter, a DJ, a kickboxer, and performance artist.

And she only died because wasn't diagnosed until it was in stage 3, which is too late, not because she was too stupid to buy insurance.

So to reiterate, fark you.

And this is another sad misconception about the modern porn actress or "Porntress", as they're known in the industry. One would think that with so much frequent and varied copulations these young women would be glowing and vigorous, filled with the life-giving essence from the strong, young, virile men. Such powerful emissions inspire us not only with their copious volume, but with so many nutrients and hormones that should strengthen a young woman. But alas, such bounty is not to be enjoyed by the ladies of poorn. For while they enjoin countless suitors in sexual congress, nearly all of them will withdraw from their thrustings and deliver their ejaculate, that sweet elixir of vitality and strength, upon the backs, buttocks, breasts, and faces of the woman. While there are benefits to be gained from taking this externally, they are far surpassed by receiving the man's portion internally, as intended by the Maker. Even to swallow this precious essence is to lose much of it's benefit to gastric juices, and what could empower the recipient is lost.

Such is the tragedy of modern porn.

If true, then my point about her not buying health insurance is valid: She could obviously afford it, as even a $450 a month "Cadillac plan" would have been only 2.7% of her income.

No billers. No collectors. No claims representatives. No managers of the call centers fielding patient questions.


So you think a public health insurance plan won't have any need for these types of jobs? Also, the existence of a public option does not eliminate private care and private plans. See also: public education.


This is my job. I have been in health insurance claims for five years now, and my job is about to disappear. When everything is paid at a contract rate, it'll all be done out of one office in DC and it'll be run like the DMV. They'll claim their economy is thriving while everywhere else is like when all the car plants shut down in Detroit.

You need to familiarize yourself with how the federal gov't operates. There are over 4 million federal employees on the payroll spread over in all 50 states and abroad. If everything was run out of one office in DC, it would be hard to fit all 4 million of them in it and the DC traffic would be even worse than it already is.

Wanna know what happened when the US gov't took back the student loan business from private lenders? They contracted out the servicing of those loans to same people who used to provide them.

Animatronik: "Its possible to get catastrophic health insurance at reasonable rates when you're young."

Sure. Unless their adjusters determine there's too large a chance that they won't make their desired profit margin from you. (determined in a wondrously opaque manner where being a woman gets their 'decline' or 'offer prohibitively expensive plans' stamps out and hovering over the page before they even get to the meat of the application)

Say, if you have a family history of major illness. Or you're diabetic. Or you have migraines. Or you work in a 'high risk' industry. ('high' and 'risk' also being defined by their adjusters based more on whether you're compatible with the company's *desired* profit margin than even whether you're a risk of not being profitable at all.)

Or any of the other dozens upon dozens of reasons they will "decline to offer" you coverage today, or simply decline to offer you anything remotely 'reasonable' or affordable.

So, yeah. *some* people can get catastrophic health insurance at reasonable rates. And *some* has been long-understood to mean "pretty much just young healthy males."
(There's a reason PPACA explicitly forbids discriminatory offerings for women.)

There are so many things wrong with your premise. I'll help you here because I like you.

First: Public heath care doesn't eliminate private insurance. There will always be people who will pay to be first. Therefore there will always be private insurance and private doctors for the uber-rich.

Second: The infrastructure will change, not be eliminated. Billing will still occur (single payer) because hospitals will still need to be paid. All those questions will still need to be answered by somebody, so those jobs will stay.

Third: Buggy whips. If you see this coming now... do something to change your position. It's like holding onto a stock too long. Are you telling me there are no other industries that answer phones or bill people? Do you honestly think that what you do is unique in the insurance industry? The people who made buggy whips biatched about the automobile killing their industry too. Just because you have a personal investment of time and money in this job doesn't mean you get to hold our nation back.

That's not what I said at all. I believe insurance needs restructuring, but to answer you and Spektyr both:

You familiar with Kaiser Permanente? I'm not sure if they have them outside of California. Anyway, there's no bullets OR payers, because the hospital pays itself. You pay a fee to use their service and they basically provide everything. You pay your copayment as well as your bill every month but the billing jobs and paying jobs don't exist within Kaiser. There's one call center for ALL of Kaiser that answers all questions.

Sure, there will still be some, but the majority will be eliminated because it'll be run like this. All bills will be paid through federal offices- which is fine, but when everyone is insured through one payer, it'll just get autopaid at the contracted rate and it's probably more like a flat fee.

I think programs like CMISP are great- they take what you earn into account for financial aid. That's how low income coverage SHOULD work.

When everything is paid at a contract rate, it'll all be done out of one office in DC and it'll be run like the DMV. They'll claim their economy is thriving while everywhere else is like when all the car plants shut down in Detroit.

There are so many things wrong with your premise. I'll help you here because I like you.

First: Public heath care doesn't eliminate private insurance. There will always be people who will pay to be first. Therefore there will always be private insurance and private doctors for the uber-rich.

Second: The infrastructure will change, not be eliminated. Billing will still occur (single payer) because hospitals will still need to be paid. All those questions will still need to be answered by somebody, so those jobs will stay.

Third: Buggy whips. If you see this coming now... do something to change your position. It's like holding onto a stock too long. Are you telling me there are no other industries that answer phones or bill people? Do you honestly think that what you do is unique in the insurance industry? The people who made buggy whips biatched about the automobile killing their industry too. Just because you have a personal investment of time and money in this job doesn't mean you get to hold our nation back.


Oh, and I actually have changed jobs- now I work in Workman's Comp. (changed jobs because I moved) but I still feel for those in my industry.

Hope I explained myself well enough :)
