I just realized that I haven't posted all week. I apologize. I've been busy getting things in order for Hubbie's retirement. We talked to several investment firms and decided on the one we want to handle our pensions and 401Ks. Once that was done, I started looking for health insurance. I decided that as long as we are healthy, we are better off to go with a policy that has a high deductible and less coverage. I can't see paying $1,400.00 a month to continue the coverage we have through Hubbie's employer, since the only thing we used his insurance for last year was one doctor visit for each of us and our prescriptions. None of the policies I've been looking at pay for prescriptions you are currently taking during the first year.
I went to my doctor Tuesday and had my annual physical. Before I dropped our insurance I wanted to make sure I'm healthy. Luckily, all my tests came back normal. I discussed my medicine with the doctor. We dropped one prescription completely, changed one to over the counter medicine, and changed two from more expensive medications to generics that are $10.00 for a 3 months supply at Walmart. That will lower the cost of my medicine from $370. a month to about $30. a month. That's a big difference. I'm sending Hubby to the doctor to get checked out and to get his prescriptions reviewed.
Everything is so green and pretty now. The azaleas are bursting out in blooms. The pollen is still falling, but it is not as bad as it was several weeks ago. This is such a pretty time of year. I want to spend all my time outside.
