Since Thad retired two years ago, there has been a tradition. On December 31st our health insurance coverage gets dropped. We usually find out by going for a doctor’s appointment or picking up prescriptions from the pharmacy and are told our insurance has been cancelled. We are not sure why it happens or even how it happens; but I am beginning to wonder whether “they” know something we don’t. Like, are we dead and just didn’t get the memo?
You would think that a phone call to the health insurance company would straighten it out quickly but….alas, today health insurance is extremely convoluted and even if you have a PhD in health administration, it makes no sense. It amazes me how many people and companies it takes for two people to have health insurance.
