Money I’ve saved in the last three months while being insured:
Hospital costs saved: $896.94 (two more claims for over $800 are still pending)
Meds costs saved: $611.51
That’s $1508.45 saved on medical costs in three months. Just three months.
I wasn’t joking when I said these costs-to-keep-breathing – pre-employement – were literally killing me.
And, of course, I HAVE paid costs out of pocket. That’s just what insurance paid. Total out of pocket for the last three months is still: $475.46
Which is still 1/4 of what I was paying in medical costs pre-employment.
