Dear parents,

Thank you for telling me I am no longer on your health insurance. This would have been helpful information to know more than 12 hours in advance of my dentist appointment. Thanks.

Me <_<

Except the "freebie" they recommended is $10. :P

You should've wanted it last year when it was still free.

Dear SammichMod,

You are over 21 and not a full-time student. Duh.

That's...just the way insurance works. You lose eligibility at either 18 or 21, depending on the company, if you're not a student. With most companies, you lose eligibility at 24 even if you are a student.

Just get your own insurance.

Yeah, well, it would have been nice if someone had told me. Which they didn't.

Is it even worth it though?

Uh, yes. Is it worth it to have auto insurance (assuming that your state doesn't mandate it)? Yes; you never know when your car is going to be a victim of the weather or somebody else's poor driving, and you never know when you're going to come down with a disease straight out of House or just trip and break your wrist.

Wow, so I went to Dillon's to get a salad so I could eat lunch at my desk today. Apparently I made it a little bigger than I meant to :lol: so now I have leftover salad for dinner.

in all fairness on the auto insurance, *some* people are more accident prone than others :P

Hmm I have to pay my doc $85 cash just for the standard issue poke and prod session. No blood work. If I add that on we are talking well into the hundreds for goony stuff like cholesterol screening. You lose maybe a few bucks a week out of your paycheck to get the basics covered if you get hurt or sick. The average hospital stay for a week costs AS MUCH AS YOUR CAR. A broken tooth can cost up to a couple grand to get fixed or extracted. You do the math.

I don't know the rules in TN or KS Mark, but in NH you can go without insurance, but you had best have the money to fix the other guys car and injuries to their satisfaction otherwise you lose your driver's license until that is the case.

Check at any place with a pharmacy...my nearest one has cheap bloodwork once a month.

Yeah, that too. I miss free office visits. A hundred damn thirty dollars to pick a thing out of my eye.

Isn't there any female out there that likes heavy rock? Am I the only one? Are there no female Metallica fans? Sabbath? Heart? Scarlet Sins?

It's not supposed to snow in April.

That's what I said yesterday. I want real spring.

What everyone else said
Even in Canada, dental isn't covered for adults without some kind of private plan.
