Hello all, well here's the story for the week, I am talking about a personal situating when it comes to health care. I was into the hospital this past week. I had to have surgery for something. The hospital was suppose to keep me overnight, but they have a policy that they only keep you for 6 hours and then send you home. The reason for that is the insurance companies will not pay for overnight stays in the hospital anymore unless it an emergency. Anyway being a cheapskate that I am and proud of it to. When I was introduced to the doctors that would do my surgery . The first thing I asked them was do they take my insurance because I did not want any extra medical bills coming my way. Was I wrong to ask them that since they were about to open a sista up in the operating room?
I also told the nurses that took care of me don't give me any medication that is not covered under my insurance plan. Was I being to cheap with my health? I realized that if it's was not for my partner having good insurance I would be screwed when it came to my medical expenses. That's why I wanted to tell you that you need good medical insurance and extra money on the side for medications and co pays. I still have to pay co- pays when I go to the doctors but I am ok with that has long as the insurance company covers the rest. And if you have not notice Heath Care is expensive
So no matter what insurance you have make sure you set some money aside extra for the unexpected medical cost that insurance companies don't pay for. So what do you think?
