When agency recruiters email me back and ask if I'm available for $x/day instead of making me guess what the project might pay. Today was payday. Grateful for that.

Pros and cons doing a HDHP with HSA vs. regular PPO? Cost wise, I’m spending $18/month on the PPO and $20 copays per visit (I only usually do my physical and maybe 1-2 specialist visits). With the HDHP, I’d pay $0/month, would have to pay for each appointment given after $3000 deductible, but my company contributes $900 to my HSA. It estimates I’d pay $90/yr with the HDHP as I’d use the $900 to cover the costs vs. $345 with the PPO. I always see HSA emphasized here so confused what route to go

They're quite new on the job so I'm still navigating communication with them. I don't want to micromanage, but they do have major projects that they're responsible for. If they didn't have things due I'd be all for it no questions asked - I'm a big believer of shutting the laptop down and leaving early as long as the work is done
