Look mommy....look what I have


Confused? Don't be...let me explain...

If you're from the U.S you've probably never seen something like this because well...unless you have a full time job with full time benefits you probably can't afford it or unless you're under the age of 21 and are covered by your parents who have full time jobs with full time benefits you won't have it either. It's called health insurance. Yes ladies and gentlemen....I paid $300 pesos (= $85.71 dollars) for full health insurance coverage for 2 months! Dos Meses!

Yes it covers prescriptions...yes it covers an ambulance....yes it covers any specialists I may need, including a psychiatrist! (unfortunately it won't cover tarot card readers or fortune tellers...bummer!)

Sooooo....what's up with that universal health care or I'd even settle for some affordable health care....I'm tired of calling my cousin who lives deep in Jersey to do some house calls and I'm sure my med school friend is tired of getting my house call text messages.
