Health Insurance is Bananas

Guess what I found out today with the help of a health insurance specialist at the unemployment center? I had secondary health insurance for a year that I didn't know about! Apparently, on the back of the rejection letter that Mass Health sends out, is your Health Safety Net member info. A year ago, I saw the first paragraph rejecting my Mass Health application and threw the letter out. Who knew that there was something else on the back? Man, this is why I wish regular citizens could access the NEHEN system... So, anyways it turns out that I didn't need to shell out over $2,000 this past calendar year for medical expenses because HSN would have covered a bunch of my diagnostics and labs. FUCK!

OMG really? I wonder if I had that when I was laid off???? I have had to shell out close to $2K myself becuase of damage when I sprainted my foot and ankle (and apparently tore my Achilles tendon, which wasn't diagnosed until almost a year later). GGGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.
