    Default Finally Some Good News

    I have to make this short and sweet because the current influx of spammers really doesn't give us much time to talk however I did have to share some news.

    After 2 1/2 years being uninsured I FINALLY got my insurance card yesterday! My medicare advantage plan through Humana means that starting in Oct. I can once again start seeing the specialists that I need to see! Yes, that means tons more tests (the ones I can afford) but hopefully it also means that I will actually be able to take all of my meds every month (I haven't been able to afford them all every month). Now I get to go and find out what all these other issues are and maybe start getting better instead of maintaining at best.

    yay me!

    Whoo Hooo, Mari!
    That waiting period between being declared disabled and getting Medicare makes no sense to me.
    I'm glad that it's finally over.
    Hugs,

    That is great, Mari. I am happy for you.

    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).

    i too am a happy person.
    knowing my friend - you- finally has medical cover.
    no more running out of meds, because the money ran out last week.

    someone needs to wake up the american medical system.

    Mari - I very happy you can get the care you need, but it makes me so sad that you had to go without.
