I am very grateful to have the insurance I do. Believe it or not, the city even pays 90% of Pat's coverage. When I started it paid everything for both of us. Granted that we have to pay our own dental and vision, but those don't amount to a lot per paycheck.

This is the first job I've had with benefits like this (apart from the Army). I go to the doctor pretty much of my choice, I don't need a referral for a specialist, and my co-pay is $20 per visit. Medicines are $20 or $10 co-pay, depending upon whether or not it's generic, and I can get up to 100 days supply at one time.

Yeah, I got it good. I ain't complainin', believe me. I just think of those who aren't as lucky and, well...something has to be done.
