I can see where this could be a problem for some. My wife and I are both Vets and enrolled in the VA healthcare system. I have actually met a couple of other off grid vets over years while waiting at the VA.

Short of keeping a job with benefits (harder and harder to come by) I guess you have to live as healthy a lifestyle as possible and have some money set aside. A major medical situation could derail you pretty fast.

People who live in remote locations this could be an even more difficult challenge. Keep a good first aid kit and learn as much as you can in the event of an injury. People do it, so it can be done. I also think many of us run to the doctor too much anyway.
