I have a lot of feelings about math from which I shall spare the comments section of this article. To boil it down: I used to hate math, now I love math, I have always been good at math, why didn't I see this at the time?
I love this article. Meaghan, your parenting book would be one I would read SO MUCH. Thank you for being a sane person writing on the internet, from the bottom of my heart and with no sarcasm in the slightest!!! PS. I love the picture that accompanies this.
THIS GAVE ME GOOSEBUMPS AND CHANGED MY LIFE THANK YOU NICOLE DIEKER
@@fo Thank you! That makes a lot of sense. I'll keep this in mind as I navigate the exchange in a few months.
I don't turn 26 for a few more mos so still on the parents' insurance for now, but I will be making this decision on the exchange soon. That said, I have a high deductible plan. You don't pay 100% of doctor bills; it goes like this. There's no co-pay at the time of the appointment, they send the bill to your insurance co. who negotiates a discount, they send the bill to you (anywhere from 2 weeks to one million weeks later), and you pay the bill. So their out of pocket price may be $200 but you pay $120. I hate this plan because the bills always catch me by surprise and make me cranky, plus the deductible is like $4500 so at the very end of the year, only SOMETIMES has my whole family of 4 met it. If we do I go to every doctor on the planet in the month of December trying to squeeze them all in, and for some reason, I STILL HAVE TO PAY. Maybe only a $40 bill instead of a $120 bill, but it's a lot less. Clear as mud?
@Megano HOW DO YOU KNOW WHERE I LIVE? but really, we're in the market to move right now, and $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ is all I have to say
@allreb That sounds awful. But how lovely that your mom was a mom to the end -- taking care of everybody else. I'm so sorry she's gone now.
@A-M yessss so good! I love TAL.
$650 for a studio???! (I know that is not the thing to focus on but DUDE SO CHEAP!) Studios are twice that here. Damn you Miami.
