I just talking to my insurance company about the capsule study and flex sig, they will not cover anything before the first thousand dollars due to my deductable and cover 80 percent after that. And they may not even cover the capsule study, because it's considered 'experimental'. Why the hell are my parents dishing out 400 a month for this? Oh wait, that's right, because I need continuous coverage to not be denied coverage.
Also, I just started doing some calculations for my taxes (my boyfriend should be helping me tonight as he has the software) and I added up my medical expenses...they were nearly 20 percent of my income! And that's only the stuff that I paid, for, my parents have been making the insurance payments and paid for one of my months of asacol (w/out insurance because of deductable). It would have been much, much higher with that, and if I didn't have student insurance to pick up the slack on my c-scope.
Screw this, when I finish my doctorate I'm moving to Canada. Or Aussieland. Or England. Or Japan. Or something not the US.
On the plus side my UC is doing a bit better today than yesterday so far...more formed, less poos, less pain.
