Why do you have to pay them and when you need to use it they claim "we don't cover that" what the!! Why not!! I pay you every month so I don't have to pay an outrageous amount when when I have to do something. It's a total rip off!!!

This is so irritating! There are reasons I hate going to the Dr and there are reasons I hate paying a large company that banks my money then when you go they don't care. They don't want to pay. It should be illegal! I am so not a happy camper.

Anyway I have to make an appointment this week that guess what insurance won't pay for. Oh goody!! Not!

That sucks. I went to an ear specialist and not of was there a $40 copay, I got hit with an additional $80 that insurance didn't cover. I was pissed. Nothing I could do about it but it was definitely irritating.

There are only a couple industries that do get away with it.

What's worse is that next year, if you don't have insurance there is a penalty of $217 when you go to file your taxes and if by 2015 you still don't have health insurance they fine you $817!

There are some exclusions in that. If you read through the whole thing. Which sucks cuz a lot of people can not afford it yet they still make too much to qualify for state medical. We were in that position with bean's last job. He "made" too much for me to be covered but bean was still covered. It is ridiculous how much they can charge yet they don't cover crap.
