Private Pity Party

Okay, I really want to stop the not-so-positive blogs, but today the hubs came home and said that starting Aug. 1st, our health insurance deductible, which is currently MET IN FULL, will be going up by another $1200 a year. Starting then. Meaning we will have to shell out another $1200 out of pocket before it is met for the rest of this year. Oh, and then in Jan. we will start over with having to meet the full $4200. All this AND they aren't paying him a cent beyond the insurance coverage. Time to look for other solutions. I can't imagine how much it costs them a month to provide us with what is basically now catastrophic coverage, but I think I'd rather they just pay him the money.
On a side note, I guess that's a prompt from God to look at the dietary ways to relieve my pains since the meds that make me functional (and allowed for our cross-country trek) cost hundreds of dollars we don't have every month (although they currently cost us nothing since the deductible is currently met).
And just when I was getting used to living like normal people live...
Sorry, not meaning to whine. I just have to vent and then I'll get past it and see God's hand in it.
But for now I'm working my way to considering it all joy ;-).
Pin It!

Check out kidcare for the kiddos and a private policy for you...

I second Leisa--I know you would qualify for Kidcare. Not sure if it's open enrollment and I think your kids have to be off your insurance for 6 weeks.
I'll be praying for wisdom and provision.
Two more words--Maker's Diet.

The other thing to check out is the drug companies themselves. A lot of them say on their commercials, "if you can't pay for your medication, contact us..." I don't know if that would get you anywhere, but it might.

I'm sorry! What a pain! The dietary changes, though difficult, will be better for you in the long run. I'll whip you up some of those red cabbage spring rolls I was talking about - just say the word. I know you really want to try them.
