Just got a call from my dad

In case you were under the impression he thought it was a good idea that I'm walking around without health insurance right now, you are sorely mistaken.

That's ok. If anything happens, I'll take care of you!

Alison - if you're looking for ideas, I suggest looking for professional organizations you can join (like a writer's group) where you can get group rates.

Thanks for adding me as a friend in the Activity Pit. I guess we're offically friends now. Who would have thunk it?

Health insurance. Isn't that a load of crap! Here's a line from Lewis Black, in the movie "Accepted".

"Health insurance my ass! They don't pay for ****. You get sick on a Friday, they only pay from Monday through Thursday. You go to doctor A, they only pay for doctor B. You break your penis, they only fix vaginas!"

Crap, Alison replies to Michael on the Tumblr and is Joe's "Pit Friend" I'm totally feeling like the third wheel on this blog...but at least I have PPO.

At the risk of sounding cheezy, in which this case a don't care. One of the greatest things in life is ALWAYS being "Daddy's Little Girl."

I was in the same boat. My jobended12/31/2007.

Here is my approach:

1) Get a cheap health care plan (not pre-paid service, but insurance so you don't go broke if hit by a bus) from Humana http://www.humana-one.com/ (google for some similar in your area) . It is cheap. Less then $100 per month for a single individual.

2) Plan on using a Walgreens walk-in clinic if I need to. Nurse Practitioners staff it. They do 80% of what a GP or Family Practice doc can do - but cheaper).

This solves the problem and doesn't break the bank.
