It's insurance plan time, and we had a meeting at work on Thursday. The company is picking up stakes and moving to a new provider, which is fairly disruptive to a lot of the folks at work. Ironically, not for me, as my current physician, office and so forth was already part of the new network. Personal pay-in is going up considerably, but it isn't anything I can't handle. But I found myself giving out my doctor's name for several co-workers looking for a new home as their old primary care physician was left behind in the old network, or in one case, because he hadn't had a primary care doctor at all, and the new paperwork requires it.
One of the higher-ups, who was a big Obama man, is apparently particularly feeling the pinch, and was less than thrilled. Although that might have just been the laryngitis.
