Another Reason to Insure

A study shows that uninsured people who come into an ER after a trauma are almost twice as likely to die as insured patients. They don't know why, but I wonder if it has to do with prejudice.

I gave Junie her first pill this morning -- I figured this would work best in bed -- by rolling over and holding her with part of me while opening her mouth with one hand and putting the pill in with the other. Let's see if that works tonight. I sure hope it makes her less antagonistic.

My Explanation of Benefits (EoB) for October came today and I'm now halfway through the Plan D donut hole. I don't expect to get to catastrophic coverage for meds during the next two months, even with the $200 for the Restasis. And then January starts again and I might stay out of the donut hole next year.

The MRI results came back and the open part of my brain is healed. The B12 test was fine, too. The neurologist says the problem with words and such is partly because I'm still settling from the March stroke and partly because I'm getting old. Hmph.
