Health Insurance…DENIED!

Today we suffered a bitter defeat to the forces of stasis (that is, the forces that attempt to keep us in the U.S. and not adventuring). Several days ago we applied for health insurance through IMGlobal, partially at the recommendation of my seasoned ‘adventure pal’ Lee Sullivan who has been living in Paris for several years now. I know what you’re thinking: you’re only applying for health insurance NOW?! 5 days before my COBRA option under Sony expires? Well, we tried a month ago, I swears it! But the funky international health insurance system doesn’t allow you to even apply until you’re within 30 days of departure, and then, well, things got busy.
It was rather infuriating to be rejected (apparently because of my modest high cholesterol issue) but as Sue pointed out, the American health care system is really a competition to acquire completely healthy individuals, letting even the slightly unhealthy fend for themselves. This becomes all too apparent when you don’t get health insurance through your job as we are doing for the first time in our lives.
Happily, a few hours later we found another, less comprehensive but still adequate plan, and it appears that we are now covered. Total cost for 3 months: around $400 for both of us.

    $400 isn’t bad. Actually, for 2 people x 3 months, that seems pretty good. At least from my standpoint of complete frakkin’ ignorance…that reminds me, I should probably get some health insurance today…

    Does hookah smoke count as prescription medicine?

    Didn’t they understand that a fully developed protruding pineal gland is not only healthy, but the next stage in post-human evolution?

    Hi kids,

    Today is the 19th and I know you’re going overseas today, so safe, happy, fun travels. I’m guessing you may not get this until you arrive, so I hope you HAD a safe, fun, happy trip. May the Travel-in-Strange-Lands Fairy smile upon you.

    Also, watch out for poisoned dates from vest-wearing monkeys.
