FREE Health Care!!!!
No mention of the deductable though...Fri Dec 27, 2013, 08:52 PM
My dear brother, 55 years old, professional drummer, made an announcement this weekend...
He's been a drummer all his life- actively on the roster of up to 5 bands at a time to keep steady gigs, getting paid from $50 to 100/night 3 to 5 nights a week (and 5 nights is a good if rare week). Never had health insurance except when he worked in restaurants and that was decades ago... fortunately he keeps himself in excellent shape as he couldn't keep up his job if he slacked off.
We were gathered at our sisters house for Christmas when he spoke up: "I went on the healthcare.gov website last week and after about 30 minutes filling things out- I HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE (30 minutes huh???)... and because of my meager drummers income- IT'S FREE!!!! And better still- I've decided to dish out $25/month for dental!!!"
It was high fives all around and a great sigh of relief for all 4 of his sibs! Our baby brother has healthcare/dental starting January!!!!
