Dont be a fool like me. ive had insurance my whole life except for the last year now. i started my current job a little over a year ago. when i started they said they were getting insurance very soon, cause the buisness was growing alot. i asked about the insurance a few weeks after starting they said someone was coming in to do the insurance. i filled out all the forms. weeks passed and no word on insurance. ends up the lady quit in which we gave the forms to. few months pass and i ask again about insurance. we fill the forms out again, and weeks later no word. i cant remember the bosses excuse on that one.
So finally about 3 weeks ago they get the forms in again for insurance. they decided to do the 401k plan first. and later they would go over the insurance.
It was too late i got kidney stones 2 weeks ago. most horrible thing i have ever been thru. i thought i was going to die. the local hospital wouldnt help me because of no insurance. the stone was 8.5mm the human body can only pass 5mm or less. the hospital shot me up with morphine and gave me enough pain pills to last 2 days. i called the urologist and couldnt get in for 2 weeks even though i was dieing. i couldnt get more pain pills because the ER doesnt give prescriptions and i didnt have a family doctor.
I ended up going to st. louis cause i couldnt function enough to get help. my kidney started failing then and i had to get the stone removed immediatly. i was in constant pain, and when i wasnt in pain all i could do was think about how much its going to hurt when it starts again. i got the stone removed last friday, i wont get into that cause it was the most horrible feeling.
I am finally feeling better and its just starting to hit me that i am going to owe over 20k in medical bills. i go back into work tommorow so i am going to ask the boss to help me pay for this. he has treated me good, but i think he doesnt care. all he cares about is making money. i have started sending out resume's just in case. i will update this when i hear what the boss says tommorow.
