There is much in the life of oil and natural gas.
When you take time and think about it, it�s awesome how many things get their start from oil and natural gas. Comfy synthetic fabrics we wear all year. Medicines that help us feel better. Transportation fuels that help us get from place to place. Fertilizers that make our gardens grow. And just about every toy our children play with. Oil and natural gas - they�re the stuff of life.

Americans are being forced to self-insure and pay a growing portion of the cost of their healthcare. Some are entirely uninsured. Others can only afford or choose only a high deductible or limited benefit health insurance policy. In either case, this patient population increasingly forgoes medical procedures or relies on emergency care for its healthcare needs and often incurs prohibitive expenses. Additionally, costs of healthcare (in doctors� offices and hospitals) for this patient population are often far higher than the amount an insured and the insurance company would pay for the same healthcare services for its insureds. The uninsured and underinsured patients have had no one to negotiate healthcare service costs on their behalf.
