I have been sick all week with a sinus infection. I went to the doctor today and was told that if I had waited until Monday to go in I would have been in the hospital. He told me I got the prize for the worst sinus infection that he had seen all week. Not an award that I really want.
You see, I don’t go to the doctor unless I am in a lot of pain or really ill. I know that I should go more often, but with the deductible on our health insurance, I really can’t afford to go unless it is a absolute necessity.
Health insurance companies have a real good racket going for themselves. Any insurance company, for that matter. You pay these high premiums month after month and then you have to pay a co-pay and a deductible on top of that. Most deductible’s these days are outrageous if you want to get a decent, affordable premium. No wonder people don’t go to the doctor and take better care of themselves. We can’t afford it!!!
I realize that the insurance companies are out to make a profit, but this is getting ridiculous!!!
