I recall when he built the Palm Beach mansion he said he was self-insured. It wouldn’t surprise me to hear that extends to his medical insurance as well.
Of course he’s self-insured. What insurance carrier would accept him, with all of his pre-existing medical conditions?: drug addition, intractable pain, cervical spine damage, cardiac problems, smoking, goodness knows what else. And even if they did, why should he pay? Why not just write a check for any procedure, if you have the money? That’s what everybody used to do. It’s only been in the last half-century or so, when medicine has been more complex and thus terribly expensive, that we’ve started to use insurance. But even if, God forbid, Rush needed a heart transplant, he could pay cash for it.
