Question of the Day

Since the topic du jour is health care, tell us about yours.

Do you have health insurance, and if so, are you happy with it? If you don’t, how do you deal with it?

My employer pays for my basic care, which includes doctor’s appointments with a small co-pay, prescriptions with the co-pay, emergency care, and one eye exam every other year (again with a co-pay). I have yet to see if it covers hospital stays, etc. I could have added long-term coverage and other options, and I probably will as I get older, but right now I have the basic insurance and I’m fine with it. I don’t have dental insurance, but my dentist is less expensive than the insurance itself.
