  • Insurance

    This may be just another day to most people, but for me it will go down in history as THE DAY I FINALLY GOT HEALTH INSURANCE!

    And it's because of this board. I mentioned my troubles getting insurance in a post some weeks ago, and a board member (who I believe would rather not be identified) sent me a private e-mail describing how I should proceed. I did and it worked.

    I've never been so happy about a $900 monthly obligation...

    I know how you feel. I was absolutely gleeful that my horrible, miserable, slow-motion lobotomy-inducing temp job comes with CIGNA's PPO (for a price, but man, I don't care. I love PPOs).

    Take care!

      Congrats! I share your enthusiasm. I just got accepted onto a plan on September 1st, after not having health insurance for over two years. My plan isn't the best in the world (HMO) but it's health insurance nonetheless and i ain't complaining!

      Good for you Bill... now let's hope you never need to use it! LOL.

          Guys, that's great and here's hoping you never have to use it.
          Every great thing that has ever happened since the beginning of time has started as a single thought in someones mind.
          So if you are capable of thought then you are capable of great things
          Good luck and stay well.
