I FINALLY have (temporary) health insurance (at least they took my money so I think that means I have health insurance). Hopefully by the time it's up I'll either have a real job or less debt so I can afford something more long term. The price was significantly better than other places though.

Of course it doesn't cover a million pages of stuff, like motorcycle racing...not that I'll be doing any "racing" ever though.
:biggrin

I got it through the honor society that I am an esteemed member of.

That's awesome. Medical insurance is insane and getting more and more insane by the year. Hopefully the .gov will step in and cap rates or something. Something needs to change or in a few years we'll have a real mess on our hands.

Again congrats...

I think Canada has the right idea of health coverage, this place doesn't have the right idea about much of anything that has to do with helping the people.

Gongrats Mel, that is good thing you got there.

People abuse this system to no end, and even though you have basic coverage, we still pay extra that get things like dental and eye exams.

If lucky you can get a job where the company pays for the extra medicals, like in my case, but not everyone is that fortunate.

No need to preach to the choir. I'm in the Corp and I completely understand. At the same time I know of a multitude of companies (mostly in the defense industry) where I could get the same if not better healthcare. The only grip I have about military health care is when you get sick for small stuff & they give you motrin and tell you to drink water.

Truth be told I've toyed with the idea of joining the military. But I would want to do something related to my field...maybe I could help them with psychological warfare or something

you would have to go into the medical field and persue it that way. there are psycologists in the military, but for the most part its all civilian run now.:kiss

Thousands of Vets coming back Mel, there will be plenty of work for you, I'm sure... War is Hell.
