Healthcare issues while living the RV lifestyle can be resolved. Yes, I know this subject strikes fear in the hearts of even the bravest when thinking about living the dream, full-time or even seasonally. The healthcare game has become so complicated that most just accept whatever comes their way. The paperwork alone is daunting, then the tests, the rising costs, the possible limitations, and the nagging feeling that the money may run out before you do.

Keep the faith! As you begin to realize that part of the complication is purely politics, the path becomes clearer. It is just a matter of understanding a few fundamentals and reacting to each situation as necessary. It does take patience and confidence to untangle the strings. The information in "Healthcare & The RV Lifestyle" helps move you into the confidence mode; the patience you must provide yourself.

If you have serious health problems, then the research is more intense. By this time you have already faced the health negatives and decided to join the RV lifestyle whatever the challenge.

It may not surprise you to know that many of the travelers facing health challenges immediately start to improve after a few months on the road. This lifestyle does that to you. It creates that stress-free, independent relationship with nature that heals.

Planning is an important part of getting ready to live life on the road as a full-time RVer or a seasonal traveler. If you already have healthcare issues, or just want to cover all the bases for future need, Healthcare and the RV Lifestyle can fill in the blanks for you.

The information in "Healthcare & the RV Lifestyle" focuses on the original Medicare that provides coverage for applicants over 65 years of age. The information is gleaned from my personal journey dealing with the current medical industry in the United States.

I am not a physician, nurse, or medical technician, simply a senior citizen faced with the current medical crisis in this country. Knowledge is part of the cure, in my opinion, and can ease the transition from your current life to the RV lifestyle.

"Healthcare and the RV Lifestyle" is designed to present the important elements required for a safe and healthy interface with the healthcare industry. If you are looking for help choosing the right healthcare plan among the many commercial alternatives available, this is not the book for you.
