Re: Ok Trekkers, Don't Forget To Sign Up For Mandatory Obamacare Oct 1 I'm a relatively healthy 32 year old guy. I'm a doctor, eat well, exercise, and have had high cholesterol since I was a child (thanks paternal ancestors!), and I have been unable to buy health insurance for any price. God knows I've tried. I've no problem paying for insurance or my current care and meds, but this law has made it possible for me to actually receive health insurance. And I no longer have to worry about an accident wrecking me financially. That's huge. I'm so very happy for it.
