So Sean, when are you going to have a Lawnsite group medical insurance plan availible to it's members?

Actually, what I see is that a lot of guys in this business are having their wives land jobs that carry benefits. It surely can be a problem for those who aren’t covered, who can’t afford the visits to the doctor, who can’t afford the medicine, and who can’t afford insurance.

Kinda’ like going though life with a time bomb strapped onto your back, not knowing when it will go off, but at the same time can’t afford to have someone remove it.

Well after reading this thread a couple weeks ago I made an appointment. It's tommorrow. Not liking doctors, it's been awhile since any kind of exam.
Also I now have health ins. through my wife, since we got married in July.

Hope everything goes OK. I'm going try to get as many tests I can get on one visit.

G.M.Landscaping, hey you're still a young buckeroo.

In our business we have to make house calls. Remember when doctors used to do this? However this day and age it's become a processing plant for ninety nine percent of the doctors... patients in, patients out, all day long. All stats and numbers, no faces, no names.

If you're really sick and need immediate attention, it isn't likely that you'll get to see your doctor, but you'll have to wait in line at one of the Urgent Care centers. I had to take my wife in last week and we sat there for three hours, which happens to be typical for here. In three hours you could be dead, or at least wish you were. And we wonder why our health care system has fallen behind other countries, duh.

Uh huh, that's a bummer G.M, but join the club. I guess this weekend we'll both be watching the superbowl and munching on carrots instead of nachos and pizza.
