So my regular readers know that I was a little sick last month. I won't bore you with the details but suffice to day that I had a nasty nasty cold that lasted over a month. I am on my second round of antibiotics and recovering. Considering the grand scheme of things, it is no big deal. I really don't want to share the boring details of my mucus and cough.
What I really want to share with you is the wonderful experience I had with my health insurance. Yes. Wonderful and health insurance in the same sentence.
I've been lucky to work in the high-tech industry and have a very decent health insurance. For years, I've had this thing called the White Glove service. I did not really know what it meant and never bothered to use it.
Then one morning, as I was coughing my lungs out, someone sent me an email about being sick and calling White Glove. That immediately got my attention and I looked into it.
Essentially, my health insurance provided a service that would give me a house call. A nurse or an assistant would come to my house and diagnose me. And give me the meds.
Since this had lasted for over a month, I immediately scheduled an appointment.
And promptly, a nurse came to my house. And he got all these goodies that you see in the photo! A gift for me. There was more stuff but I used it up:) He checked me and gave me more antibiotics. Everything was inflamed and I was not recovering. The best part about the experience? He had all the medications in his car and promptly gave it to me.
To clarify, I am no prescription addict. But it was fabulous to have someone at my house and say, can you give me something for my nose? And my ears? I feel like caterpillars are crawling in my ears constantly. And I take cough suppressants all the time but it is getting worse and worse.
He gave me all kinds of medication to deal with this nasty stuff that I have been dealing with.
And how much did this cost me? 25 dollars. Yep. I could not believe it. I kept saying it was too good to be true. What was the catch?
