As I previously mentioned Sharon and I are members of the Coopera Health Insurance . Our premiums are approximately $4.75 per month and that gives us just under $1000 of medical benefits per year. The doctor's visit at the San Jacquin Clinic is a $2 co-pay.
I needed some blood work for a cholesterol check. On Monday I walked to the lab Mt. Sinai Hospital and had my blood drawn at 9:30 am My veins are not prominent and when I had blood drawn in the States I was always jabbed 3 or 4 times before they found a vein. I was dreading this visit since I didn't think I had enough Spanish to explain about my weak veins. The lab tech got the vein on the first try and I had to look twice to see if blood was flowing because I didn't even feel the needle go in. There was a total of 11 tests and the bill came to $29. I had the lab results in my hand at 3:00 pm that day. The next day I saw the Coopera Doctor to go over my lab tests. The doctor took me at 3:00 pm sharp and I spent twenty minutes going over each test.
