I love insurance!

I know it's not a sexy subject. Paperwork is boring. Talking about deductibles and co-pays isn't likely to set pulses racing. But yesterday, my insurance coverage left me elated.

I went to the ER last month and had a CT scan. I'm glad I went. Head injuries are nothing to trifle with. But I was worried about what it would cost me. I figured it would be about $500. I wasn't happy about it, but I realize that's a fraction of what the procedure cost.

Yesterday I learned that my portion was less than $300. I feel very fortunate that I have insurance that affords me the luxury of taking care of myself.
