It’s open enrollment time for me! I currently go to Shaarp and thinking to potentially switch to Kaiser. I have no complaints against Shaarp thus far. I’m fairly healthy but occasionally have to see a doc as I have a weaker immune system. Maybe 5x a year max including regular check up. Mental health services and getting an appt quickly are key to me. I would like to hear some pros and cons first kaiser if anyone can share their experiences!

🌟 PROS | I love Kaiser, I love their app. And I can request a virtual appointment anytime. They can ship my meds or pick them up. It’s really easy for me to get care so I love that.

❌ CONS | Last time I got a Pap smear they sent me to the lab and I had to go in the bathroom and swab myself…. They are really dialing down the labor I guess. Kinda weird to me. I’ve NEVER had to do that. But it was fine I guess lol

I love Kaiser. It’s often more expensive upfront by cost per paycheck but actual care is affordable. Unexpected medical emergencies are so affordable the overall cost is less than another plan. For instance, surgery cost $15 all in.

Don’t know how to explain it yet, but I wanted to come here and vent. Anyone else experience this?

Caught covid and 1 week in. I'm very fortunate and my symptoms are relatively mild. I took the Regeneron antibodies and it does certainly seem to be an amazing treatment. As I have learned more, it seems that everyone I can find who took it has experienced fewer and less severe symptoms and a shorter duration overall. I have also been a strict and aggressive vitamin regimen from day 2.

If you catch covid, I encourage you to speak with you doctor about this quickly in the process.

Good luck!
