We have two toy schnauzers. A couple of years ago, we decided to get health insurance for them. The policy we bought covered everything. Wellness checks were free once a year for each of them. We thought it would be better than paying a large sum of one of them got sick.
When we picked them up, however, we discovered that their checkups were far more thorough than even ours were! In fact, when we were leaving, I looked over the itemized bill for each of the pups and It was more than a thousand dollars! Because we had the policy, it was free for us.
Not only did we change our minds about keeping the policy, I’m thinking of getting one for myself. I pay a lot more for my insurance and it doesn’t cover nearly anything like my dogs’ policy, plus there’s always a copay.
My doctors say there is no cure for the illness that I have, so why not? Maybe our veterinarian will have ideas not explored by my doctors. You never know.

And I will be in compliance with Obamacare because I’ll have health insurance. I’m going to talk with them today. I think I can fit in one of those giant kennels too, so I wouldn’t be a bother. This is a great idea! I’ll keep you posted.
