I’ve never had health insurance. I’m thinking about getting some kind, because as I get older I need to have a general practitioner, a dentist, and a gyno at least for yearly checkups. I haven’t been to a doctor for literally as long as I can remember, so it’s good I’m healthy and luckily I’ve had no emergencies/accidents. I had to have a minor surgery on my foot last year and paid for it out-of-pocket (a few hundred dollars). I just went to the dentist last month (for the first time in 5/6 yrs!) and paid for that myself as well. My job does offer insurance, and I’m considering it, but I don’t plan on staying there very long and it’s a very minimal plan. I think it may be some good for real emergencies, but for general checkups and dentistry, not so much. I tried to figure what it would cover when I have my wisdom teeth out within the next year, and it was practically nothing (like $50 I think). So right now I’m debating and I think I’m going to try to wait until I either get another job with a better insurance plan, or find a good private plan.

I’m getting ready to lose my insurance, because I’m changing jobs.  I’m looking into a private policy, which looks like it’d run me about the same as a employer-group policy, or at least about what I’m paying now.

I’ve only had it for three months, and before that I’d been without for a few years.  

My main concern is that where I live, people drive HORRIBLY, and when I would go out for groceries during the day (yay, no job :(), all of the reeeeallly old people drive terribly, and I was always worried they would hit me.

Thankfully, Boyfriend or Best Friend has put me on his car insurance, and he’s talking like he’s going to put me on his health plan as well, so if I go out driving with all of the crazy-driving people around here, maybe it won’t be as harrowing an experience.
