It's wonderful that your Grandparents could afford such good coverage. It would have been a shame if his death had been hastened by lack of treatment and your Grandmother left to spend the rest of her life harassed by debt collectors, like happens to so many people.
I wonder Squirrel, do you buy your own insurance?
