Where I've been, where I'll be
And why did I wait so long? Well, no insurance. I was so excited for ObamaCare, sure that with our low income I'd be eligible for low-cost or even free insurance, but as it turns out, this isn't the case. Not in Georgia. Georgia did not accept the Federal monies to expand the Medicaid system, so those of us who are less than 100 percent of the poverty level (we're "only" 96 percent) are screwed. If I could afford $250 to $400+ a month for insurance, I'd already have it. So, now I have to apply for charity care through the hospital and hope that they will still treat me properly even if I'm not paying. We'll see just how that works out.
So, expect further silence. Odds are I'm not going to be feeling up to much of anything for awhile, although I am still going to try to review J. Simon's books later this month. Meanwhile, I thought I should let you know what is going on. I have a friend who'll watch the blog for me while I'm in the hospital, but just to approve any comments. See you all on the flip side... I hope.
