My health insurance premium has just come through.
You might remember that this was the cause of much debate back in August last year when I was transferred from a company that provided insurance as part of my package to another company that didn't. I was clearly going to be out of pocket over this, but seeing as I was seeing a neurologist about the WTs at the time, I felt I had little choice but to ensure that I maintained cover, pretty much whatever the cost. After a bit of to-ing and fro-ing with my new employer, I was also given a small salary hike and a one-off payment to cover me for the equivalent of one year's premiums.
That year is now almost over. My premium for next year?
£93.88 per month.
I know that my last set of MRI scans cost £900 and I'm hardly likely to let the insurance cover drop now.... but.... I have to admit that I took a very deep breath when I opened the envelope and saw that.
