My monthly payment goes down $50. Prescriptions look like they are now part of the deductible so after the first $500, the drugs I take will more than double in cost to me. A checkup visit to the doctor will go from $35 to $0 but any other visit will go from $35 to more like $60.
I could be reading it all wrong. On Friday, I should be able to log onto the insurance website and see the new stuff and get a better idea of the details (it will show the current stuff until then).
Oh well, it's better than no insurance and I'm lucky to have it. And I have the money. I'd sure rather spend it on other stuff, but at least I have it. And if I'm lucky, I can get through next year without getting sick!
And I got a package from the unemployment peops. My state unemployment benefits are running out and they tell me that I can apply for a federal package to extend my benefits another 47 weeks.
I think the feds don't need me sucking on their teet. My declination will be my charitable contribution this year.
