A Month of Gratitude - Day 03 (Health Insurance)

Last week, I had to go to the Emergency Room for a problem with my toe. Because Ric works at Kaiser, we spent all of $5 on the co-pay for the visit and another $5 for the antibiotics prescription.

And now, our friend Andrea has broken her tibia and needed to go to the ER, too. A few hours later, she had been seen by the doctor, x-rayed, diagnosed, and sent on her way. Because she is insured, she was able to get the care she needed.

Today, I'm thankful that I have such great medical insurance. I'm grateful that help is available when I need it. In a time when so many are without affordable care, I am thankful for the coverage we have and the care we receive.
