I'm pretty irritated today.
Did you know if you're lucky enough to be laid off in this economy, you can look forward to paying Cobra insurance premiums almost equal to your enormous mortgage payment????
Gee, good thing I'm not pregnant.
Especially good that I'm not right in the middle of a high risk pregnancy.
Good thing I don't have a critical pre-natal test to be completed this week.
Good thing I don't have a doctor's appointment next week.
Good think I'm not at all in need of health coverage.
Wow, that would be really inconvenient if I was.
Please don't talk to me about Cobra and the Stimulus Bill. Here's how it works . . . pay the full premium (again, which is almost as high as my giant mortgage) and wait until the government gets it head out of its A$$ to reimburse you for the 65% they promise to pay for you. I guess since I'm so rich in my current unemployed state the government expects me to loan it money. How nice.
So, basically . . . we can pay for health coverage and almost go bankrupt or we can continue uninsured and hope the baby turns out ok without prenatal care.
How's your day going?
