12 Days of Thanksgiving Day 6

I am thankful that my husband found a job with a company that offers decent health insurance.

We just became eligible for health insurance, and I was surprised with how reasonable the plan was. Floored is more like it!

My company offers health insurance, but for a family, the cost is something like $200 every 2 weeks. Plus they have a high deductible and copay. We can't afford that. So for the past 3 months Daniel has had no insurance at all, and we have been hoping and praying that he does not get sick.

Jeff's company pays $115 a month. For all three of us, our cost is only $45 a week!!!!!! The deductible is reasonable, and so are the copays and RX costs!!!! HALLELEUGHIA!!!!!

We are off to get him a flu shot this afternoon and get the new patient package, and he will be getting a checkup in the next week hopefully!!!

Whew! That must be a load of your mind! We were out insurance for many months at one point, and I think I was the most scared I had ever been in my life.

I am glad you have insurance now. I cannot imagine not having insurance, especially with a child...I am sure you were walking on eggshells the last few months.

I'm glad you have insurance now! I am trying to choose a plan for next year from work. They switch everything up for next year. It is stressful.
