I trust once you've been around a little longer you'll mellow a little.

If not you'll end up on a lot of peoples ignore lists.

I would think it unlikely many people with chronic conditions would be getting in?

For a family of four we spent less than $400 on medications this past year (hopefully that trend continues). Most medical expenses (doctor prescribed) are also deductible on your tax return. There are of course certain criteria to be met, a tax preparer should be able to advise on that.

If you or a dependent has a disability you may also be eligible for a Disability Tax Credit. Your doctor need to fill in a form for you to claim this.

The costs that a new comer will have to deal with is a lot higher than most anticipate- and it is not about scaring new comers.

Fuschiagirl just an example of irrelevant post that fills up these threads- I am sure Surrey Expat can defend his own statements.

BE is for new and "established" member- its not a private forum for a select few members & it is an opportunity for all to learn- just expressing my view or do BE senior members have a right to dictate who can post.
Why is my post irrelevant

No one mentioned your "higher family income" - in fact I am sure no one is interested

Your income has no bearing on the amount others pay for insurance. As your wife is a GP I presume you get priority treatment anyway

I make a public apology on BE to all members- no offence intended on my posts- A chronic medical condition is one that requires 3 or months of treatment, as I keep saying newcomers should be aware.
