Snowball of pain... Vent

Oct 29, 2014 5:36 AM

just venting at 5:30am... tomorrow is trashed and my insurance expires at the end of the month, so I've got to navigate that wonderful healthcare.gov to get a new policy for Nov 1. Knees and ankles and hips started rather suddenly to accelerate to an 8 or 9 and spread to hips. What doesn't hurt pulses or itches. I hate this. I need to focus on something else! Thanks for letting me yell! Hubbie and dogs are snoring. grrrrrr.

hi! I read your post and sympathize with insurance. I was fortunate that when I moved to Arizona last year it made me eligible to change from regular Medicare and Medicaid because of "Obama Care" Health Care Reform Act. Now I don't have to fight with state-run Medicaid!!! I have REAL insurance through Humana. Good Customer Service and I can get my medications mailed to my home!!! Yes, the copays are a bit higher but the quality of the service makes up for that. When I was on Medicaid I ended up paying for some of my hospitals stays that were supposed to be covered because the service was so bad. Go to HealthMarkets.com and you can enter your phone and someone very knowledgeable will call you back and explain your options to you. Best wishes, Louise
