Yep, that's right. Do *you* have health insurance not tied to your place of work? Do you have 100% assurance that the company from which you bought the insurance will still be there 70 years hence? Have you negotiated rates that will be predictable, no matter what health conditions you develop? Do you have money full set aside to pay the premiums for your full life span? If the answer to any of those questions is no, you have not planned for sudden health crisis.

Unfortunately, in the US, it is pretty much impossible to satisfy all of those requirements.

One can't proceed from the informal to the formal by formal means.
