My work has been going through some budget cuts due to this nasty recession. The latest was to cut back on our NC health insurance and increase our copays to $40. That means just to visit the doc it’s now going to cost $40 plus the cost of any medicines we may need. I’m frustrated but it’d be a lot worse if I didn’t have any insurance at all. Still it is rather depressing. I’m going to do my best to avoid having to go to the doctor even more than I already do!
