Something Just Got Easier

My temp agency, despite a little bit of weirdness a few weeks ago, is doing me a solid! It is offering me health and dental indemnity insurance. It’s not as good as my old insurance, but it is less than 1/4 of the price. It covers “the basics.”

What a huge relief! I refuse to go without insurance, but the cost is burdensome to say the least. I am so happy, and vaguely impressed that this is happening. I remembered that you could get major medical after 1100 hours of work, but this less fancy medical insurance after 140 hours of work is also nice.

But again, this underscores the need for health care reform, so that individuals have access to affordable, high quality plans that defray the costs of preventative care, wellness checkups, and prescriptions in order to avoid major medical problems down the road.

  1. I’m very pleased to hear that you’re being looked after. I’d be terrified of having no medical cover and it seems that it’s very expensive in the USA. As one of those terrible limey socialists (!) I entirely agree with you. Long live the NHS and may it happen for everyone soon.
