    There are always some kinds of loopholes in systems. But “honor” shall play a key role in SA applications since the appointees will be eventually leading soldiers and others as a leader. If he/she failed in “honor code” from the beginning, they already failed in their “future” leadership.

    A major problem always starts from a tiny scratch or dent but it mostly ends up in “failure.” DoDMERB or USNA would not detect this type of issue immediately but a system will define “failure” eventually.

    As I managed some big/major projects and personnel issues, those problems used to be disclosed by “system” eventually. Some folks here might understand the meaning of “system.”

    I disagree. I think plenty of people pay with cash especially when you dont have insurance. Laser Eye surgery is paid with cash and so is plastic surgergy and lets not forget dental services. I agree that most people do pay with insurance and that includes myself, but as I have mentioned previously I have paid with cash when I used services outside my HMO. We even went to a private doctor (outside of the HMO) to get a second opinion about a condition my younger son had. Another time, we werent happy with the dematolgist (for my younger son) we had at Kaiser and we were referred to a private dr who really knew his stuff. WE paid both directly. Now, I paid with a credit card, but I could have easily paid with a check or cash. My point being, that while paying with cash isnt probably the norm, it happens more than you think.

    According to the American Academy of Private Physicians, only 6000 of 900,000 physicians in the US privately contact with patients for medical care, so 0.67%

    Not sure what that means. What do you mean by contact? That they pay directly? It really doesnt make a difference how many people pay with cash. If you are trying to get medical treatment and dont want anyone to see it, paying with cash is a good way to go. 0.67% represents about 2 million people assuming we have 300 million people living in the US. Which of course makes no sense as we have at minimum 11 million illegal aliens in the US and even if 25% paid with cash that would be around 3 million people.

    How about we continue the discussion on who pays medical bills and how to a new thread on the 'Off Topic' forum? We're wandering far afield here.

    Well ... as coffee and tea social threads go, it’s fairly ordinary and civil — no spatting or mud slinging, thank goodness.

    I know of a P2B that was sent home from I-Day for a muscle issue discovered during the medical intake. Another that a few days before was DQed for a blood condition. It all happens. I held my breath and prayed until that oath was taken Thursday - and continue to pray. Health is not guaranteed and as PPs said, it's most important and you must take care of that first.
