Thank goodness for awesome coverage with our insurance! I can't fathom going in monthly without it and being expected to pay such an exorbitant amount for each visit. The first thing James said when I showed him the paperwork was, "Dang, I went into the wrong profession!" Haha. I suppose we're just too sheltered since we usually don't see the cost of our care. Throughout my entire pregnancy with Liv -- including my stay at the hospital -- I never once received a bill (or even a statement of services provided, etc.). Our insurance just took care of it, and I continued on without having a clue as to how much any of it actually cost.
Well, my eyes have been opened. So, thank you Northside for that lovely moment, but really...I suppose I should thank Tricare! You have been amazing with your coverage over the years -- especially when you let me see civilian providers and still pay for it! Please don't get any crazy ideas and start cutting our benefits as the talk continues about healthcare in our country. I've already heard rumors from friends about you changing things up at Ft. Lewis for those that see civilian docs -- I hope you don't decide to do the same down here in the South!
