What I Don't Want to Do Right Now


Find out what the monthly amount for my health insurance premium will be next year.  Shudder.

I think the worse so that if it's not worse, then all the better. When the Husband tells me we received a bill in the mail, I say something like "How much—$2,503.18?" Of course it isn't. It never is. Well, untrue. We paid at last two bills like that for my not-so-hysterical surgery last May.

Now, I'm back to thinking about health insurance. Being older and now having pre-existing conditions, I'd be crazy not to have health insurance. Shudder.

  1. if congress does what they want, you might not have insurance at all with your pre-existing conditions

    1. Fortunately for me I have one more year before Medicare kicks in.

  2. Every time I read about health care in the US, I, too, shudder. It's no wonder people frequently have to start some sort of fundraising to pay for their bills.

  3. yes -- for a first world country, we sometimes do a p*!*S-poor job of things. Actually more than sometimes these days.

  4. I still just don’t understand why the U. S. Doesn’t have universal health care. Contrary to how some News agencies like to show, we do not have to wait 5 years to see a doctor and, when we go in, all we have to show is our health card and away we go...no cost. I feel so bad that a person’s health is dependant on if they can afford it. On a brighter note, I’m glad everything went well for you

    1. Pure and simple: It's because of the greedy capitalists who have no hearts in our country, which is exemplified by our current administration. It bugs me no end how so many people believe their rich lies.

  5. Yes -- I feel you pain! Last year I had surgery and chemo and our deductible was so high. The good part was that I got new credit cards and paid with them to get the sign-up bonuses. We've taken trips and stayed in nice hotels for no cost due to that. The silver lining!
