Currently, our facility doesn't offer medical insurance. It's a "discount plan" that doesn't pay for major medical in any way. I don't have it. Frankly, if I'm going to pay for "insurance", I want to be covered if I have to have surgery or something else expensive.
Yesterday we found out that we may be able to qualify for insurance through some state run deal. If we qualify, it will be a plan run by Blue Cross/Blue Shield. We're supposed to know for sure by April.
I hope this goes through. If it doesn't, then I'll still be covered by Brad's insurance eventually. After he's been in the Union for a year, he can add me to the plan. Still, sooner is always better than later.
Nice to get some hope for a change.
