Ever since I found out I had cancer, my insurance has been extremely high. The highest. I've had no choice but to pay it because well...you need insurance and I love living. When the enrollment period started, we went online to see how much it would cost us to be insured at the same level and we were pretty shocked at the difference in price. We QUICKLY signed up.
I won't say there weren't some snaffoo's initially because there were. The website kept crashing...but we kept trying. We signed up and then didn't get our cards for a while but we had the printout that said we were insured. When we got our cards, we needed a few questions answered and it took a while to get someone to answer them but now...we have cards in hand.
I used it for the first time yesterday. This is the time of the year where my pollen allergies create teeny tiny bumps around my eyes and they started. I needed the cream my dermatologist prescribes for it and, since it's been a year, I needed to make an appointment.
My copay for a specialist was $40. My doctor accepted my insurance even though she wasn't on the list. When I called and asked them, they said yes.
Even though they weren't on the list.
I had no problems at all. Got my cream, blood tests, etc.
And it is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay cheaper than I'm used to paying.
Any of you use it? How has your experience been? Was it cheaper than what you were used to paying?
