I finally got my insurance card yesterday. It came with a letter talking about a 12 month waiting period for pre-exisiting conditions, but the letter had way too many words for me to read the whole thing. I’ll have to delve into that a little deeper once I decide I need to go to the doctor. I opted for the cheapest insurance plan, and turned down dental and vision insurance. Probably not my best decision on the dental side of it, but I’m sure I’ll re-enroll for that once that time of the year comes around.
The vision insurance didn’t make much sense. A couple of years ago, I had my exam and a new pair of glasses for maybe $140 at Wal-Mart. And those stinkin’ eyeglasses have lasted me, well, maybe two years. They adjusted pretty bad right now, but I kind of like seeing things even if it means pushing them back up my nose a little more often.
ZenniOptical.com has gotten some pretty stellar reviews and enough frame choices that I’ve already picked out three different frames I like before I even figure out how I’m supposed to make them work with my lenses. Once my current frames bite the dust, which may be sooner rather than later, I have a pretty good idea of where my next specs are gonna come from.
