Our Insurance is Total Crap

May 19th, 2003 · 6 Comments

“CRAP CRAP CRAP,” I say. I say “crap” because my mom reads this and probably wouldn’t like it if I said “Our insurance is total fucking bullshit”, which it is. Last month I went to the dentist and found out afterwards that I didn’t have dental insurance. So sorry, it was terminated due to a technical error last December and nobody told me. Today I went to the allergist and found out that I have a balance of $130. A deductible that didn’t exist last year, with the same doctor and the same insurance, that has to be met before insurance will pay. Not to mention that we pay $10 copay for every office visit and he has me going to see him every month. Also, $20 for a generic prescription and $30 for a brand name? Are you fucking kidding me? I get 3 prescriptions filled every month! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! (I’m posting this as an alternative to screaming at the top of my lungs and freaking my neighbors out right now!!!!!!)

    So do jobs in teaching. Cough, spit, hiss. Oh, wait, if I had our school insurance I think at the end of the month I’d owe them money. I’m glad clartin is OTC. Wish everything else was OTC.

    Kelly J: do you work at an insurance company or are you referring to the job i left? I think I know I was spoiled by the benefits there..

    Kelly G: i dont! then insurance wouldnt pay for anything.. but with the price of my copay it’s pretty much the same as buying everything OTC.

    Losing my insurance helped in that, without it I could not possibly afford to be depressed – bec. I could not afford Celexa (which was actually contributing to instead of alleviating dep., go figure), I was forcibly withdrawn (hellish week or two) from medication. But everything’s copacetic, thankfully, as I go through life feeling things that everybody* goes through everyday. Are things better without meds? Regular exercise, books and talking to friends help. And plus the catharsis that blogging brings about :D

    What do you really think?

    That is pretty steep for prescriptions though. I’m glad the over the counter meds work well enough for me.
