The IRS won't force me to buy insurance

Via Instapundit: Taxprofblog tells us the IRS won't force Americans living abroad to buy health insurance.

Good. Because Medicare won't pay doctors here in the Philippines. So I didn't opt in on plan b, and Lolo had to pay for his own surgery with PhilHealth and cash.

I do have private insurance, but the new one only lets me see docs in Manila. Oh well. I mainly have it in case of cancer or the need for a CABG: we get our routine health care here in the provinces for free.
