    I wish. Apparently surgery is expensive without health insurance.

    I have the same plate but mine was $25,000; $15,000 of the ISKA's money and $10,000 of mine. Unfortunately, the doctor told me I can't bash people with it or it will just break at the end of the plate. :(

    Think how lame Wolverine would be if his bones just broke at the end of the adamantium every time. lol

    I have a real job. Unfortunately it's for a small company and our health insurance was badly structured. So, y'know, STBM.

    What does badly structured mean? Nonexistent health insurance that results in a $20,000 out of pocket payment is a little more serious than "badly structured", I would think.

    0 deductible, HUGE maternity coverage, MASSIVE premiums. As in, the premium was higher than my mortgage. I would have paid out close to 45k in premiums in before I needed my 20k surgery. So I actually saved 25k by not having the health insurance and paying for the surgery out of pocket since I haven't needed the insurance for anything else.
    My current insurance is a 2500$ deductible, no maternity coverage, and a completely reasonable premium. It's structured to cover accidents, injury. and illness instead of childbirth.
