Health Care Plan: Don't get sick; if you do, die quickly

Many many stories of people who found that once they got sick, their insurance didn't cover what they thought it would.  Treatment delayed, denied, or much less than doctors recommended.
Family members spending hours every day fighting with the insurance companies.  The question arises: what about those who don't have family to do that?
My parents are elderly and have their own health problems.  I have no siblings, no spouse, no children.  I'm on my own here -- if there's a fight to get me the medical care I need, or to get it covered by insurance, I have to do my own fighting.  If I'm too sick to fight for it, I don't get it.
