Others are paying for writer's health care

Editor, the Advocate:

The lady in the Tuesday Advocate who raved about the free treatments she received should be advised that it is not free.

Hospitals and doctors do not give free health services. Where she is benefiting, someone should educate her to the fact that other taxpayers are picking up her treatment costs. Others' health care premiums and their deductibles are going up to provide her these benefits. Many are receiving taxpayer subsidies toward their plans.

So, one should not rave about getting free stuff. Someone else is paying.
