Safer to not have health insurance???

I just wanted to thank those great people from harvard for pointing this out….

Let’s crunch some numbers…

300 million people in the US today.

45 million are uninsured

So 265 million people are insured.

Average life expectancy is 75 years.

So 1/75th of 265 million is 3,533,533

So we can assume that 3,533,333 people with insurance die each year.

That means…  1.33% of people with insurance die each year.

Now if 45,000 uninsured die each year…

Now that 45,000 makes up .1% of the uninsured population.

So according to the Harvard study, You’re 13 times more likey to die from having insurance than you are from not having insurance.
