    How do YOU pay for your medical procedures?

    To Anyone on PSU who is:

    Over age 18
    A U.S. citizen or resides in the U.S.

    How in the world do you pay for your medical procedures, dental, eye, internal, genitial, etc?

    Do you have health insurance? Full or partial? Do you pay outright cash? How do you pay?

    Me? I pay outright cash and I have partial insurance coverage. I'm classified as disabled so I get some medical coverage.

    I don't do anything that would degrade my health. So honestly I don't even worry about It.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    Seriously even when I'm old, like 31 ( ), I won't worry about it. For me as long I don't damage myself, I will be okay if the problems start happening. I would just accept that I did my best with my health.

    I have full coverage thru my mother. Only thing that isn't covered is dental. I'm not sure what I'll do once I'm on my own. That's money I don't have right now so I'm not going to think about it.

    All I have to do is pay co-pay. My health insurance covers the rest.

    That's how most insurances work broski unless you have a deductible plan or a max outta pocket plan. Then you pay 100% until those amounts are met then you pay nothing.

    Canada has free everything I'm getting my Canadian citizenship next week lol

    31 is far from old! lol! And some things you just can't prevent from happening...car accidents...cancer...random gorilla attacks...

    also, genetics is a mean $#@!...just ask my grandmother...who will completely forget who you are within 5 minutes...(or think my nephew is the King of England), some stuff is just out of our control...

    Employer covers my health insurance, but I only use it in an emergency. If I'm visiting the doctor for a checkup or dental procedure then I try to pay my costs up front.

    I pay out of pocket for myself. I am self employed and I do not have health insurance on myself. I also do not go to a doctor unless I think I am going to die.

    I have insurance, but I've had Lyme the past 7 months and Lyme doctors aren't covered under insurance. So each monthly visit costs a pretty penny. Luckily the antibiotics are covered.

    And now I might have to get sound therapy for sensitive hearing, and that isn't covered either. Will cost thousands.
