How an Indie Musician is Taking Control of Her Health Insurance Problem until our Country Awakens from its Dark Age. (What you probably don’t know about the Affordable Care Act and more)
(It is a dark age people: in my dream last night I went to a doctor’s office. Doc pulled me aside and said, “look, we need to talk about how you are going to pay for this before I look at you. If you don’t have insurance it’s ok. If you do, I will have to charge you for every question you ask me.” I said I did and spent the next 3 hours trying to find the receptionist as the tumor on my leg kept growing. I literally woke up crying.)
You probably just decided it wasn’t worth worrying about health insurance. It’s all a scam you think (you’re right by the way). But then you hear the story of your friend who fell off a balcony and spent weeks in a hospital. Or your buddy who thought he was healthy and then had a heart-attack. Or one of your good friends gets a cancer diagnosis at a young age…it’s not hard to believe it could happen to you. It happened to me. I had a small tumor growing on my back that I discovered at age 29 because I accidently touched it wrong got all nauseous and dizzy and almost passed out. I got it cut out. I’m good now. I had insurance.
