Alright y’all, 26yo here and first time going to the doctor for non-COVID and non-annual-physical purposes on a high deductible health insurance plan.

Not negotiable at all. But you should double check that you got all the services you were billed for.

Check the details of your plan, too. I’m on a high deductible plan that still covers non-annual Dr visits for a subsidized rate.

Hi & welcome.
Tell me your stories. Why made you decide to choose a career that's different and creative? I'll start. I am an extrovert. I am not very keen of studying and that, ideally is the reason why engineering or medical was not my cup of tea. I chose Journalism and Mass Media. In the academics, we had multiple subjects and one of them was Writing for media. This was the beginning. This is where I thought I can be a writer. A Content Writer. Besides this, I am love Rhyming Words.
