Then I started to freelance and John carried our insurance. Then his good job ended and we have insurance but it covers absolutely nothing. John went in for blood work so he could get a prescription filled and got a $1,000+ bill for the lab work. And if we don't have money right now for good insurance we also really hate a big bill like that just so he could get his meds refilled.
We limp along on this temporary insurance you can get for 6 months, and then another 6 months. Then we change companies and limp along some more. Everyone deserves to be able to get insurance and have it be affordable.
I thought this animation was interesting.
