As of August 1st (or, perhaps, retroactively today), I will have real health insurance! I'll be able to go to real doctors!! Even the dentist!! And eye doctor! Whenever I want! With no referrals or stupid campus health center visits!!
Granted, I have to pay out of pocket for my insurance, but it is only $120 a month. Far better than the bullshit that school offers. I'm already making a list of appointments to make ... teeth cleaning and check up (It's been since before I got married since my teeth have been cleaned!), ob/gyn yearly visit (I haven't had one in, oh, three years), sleep specialist (at the request of The Boy), and maybe a few more. I am so friggin' stoked. My dental plan is 100% preventative. That means I pay Zero, Zilch, Zip, Nada for cleanings, impressions, and all that stuff. My eye exams and care will be $50. Yup. That's it. I can go to any doctor I want without having to get referrals and authorization and all of that crap. Yeah!
