You can’t do this until open enrollment without a life changing event. Consider what coverage you have- some policies you don’t pay more than the initial copay.

I was also charged for x-rays but nobody told me that I could have sent my x-rays in from my prior dentist and not have had to pay for it. The entire appointment was $645 without insurance.

Why are we still lying? I’m listening to NPR this morning and they are talking about vax mandates and how they will hold up in a medical context.

I’m not conservative. I’m vaxxed and boosted.
