I had a physical therapy appointment today which is the inspiration behind today's thankful thought. I didn't have a copay, it wasn't ever a question about making the appointment, it was a simple decision to go because my health insurance covers it.
Today I am thankful for my health insurance. Our family is blessed to have wonderful medical coverage through both my husband's and my employers. Granted, we do pay a large monthly premium, I have never once considered it to high a price to pay for good health.
We are quite fortunate. I have never had to decide between taking Tysen to the doctor or buying groceries for a week, or wondered if there was enough money to pay for a prescription that will put an end to an infection he might have. These things have always been covered and for that I am thankful.
For many, there simply is no choice at all, between groceries and prescriptions; the decision to buy groceries has to come first for a lot of families. I know the health care debate is a heated one, and for a good reason, good health is the key to a good life.
