Annual exams are expensive without insurance! [Apr. 28th, 2009|02:01 am]
Child Free: Feminism


[mood |annoyedannoyed]

I'm self-employed and live in a semi-rural area, and have not had health insurance for most of this decade.
I've lapsed on my annual exam, because last time I had one, it cost roughly $200, once I factored in gas and lab fees.
I have my tubes tied, so birth control isn't an issue.

A new women's clinic opened up part-time across the street from my Vet's. Hooray! :)
I figured I'd call to see if I could schedule an appointment, and how much it would cost.
If I want an annual exam, it's $220. That includes the exam & lab fees.
If I can come up with it before 5/14, I can get it done.
I'm fairly confident I can come up with the money, but it irks the heck out of me that I have to pay that much because I can't afford insurance!
