Health coverage active again
When I left my former job on July 31, I had to apply for COBRA--a continuation health coverage that you apply for when you are no longer working for the company you originally received health coverage through. I made sure I had stocked up on my medications because without my health insurance being active, I would have had to pay full price for them. The DaVita clinic was nice enough to still allow me to have my appointments and Baxter still delivered my dialysis solutions even though my coverage had not be reactivated. I am thankful to the social worker, Adriana (same name as my wife), because she really helped me to get the application in and worked with the American Kidney Fund so that my premium would be paid.
So now, my coverage is active again and I have the exact same benefits I did when I was working. This means that my co-pays on my medication will be the same and I will be able to see my same primary doctor. And with my coverage being active, I called Cedars Sinai Hospital and informed them about the news and now the process for obtaining a kidney transplant will soon begin with an appointment with the medical center in the near future. God is good.
These days I'm feeling pretty good and I just stay busy. My project, Sports Inboundz.com, is coming along well and I'm looking forward to the new day and time change for The Sports Inboundz.com Show beginning this Tuesday at 7 p.m. There are other shows that I will soon be producing for my BlogTalkRadio channel, which you can access by clicking HERE.
Have a great weekend everyone and stay cool.
