Thankful for good insurance

I was just opening some mail and open a benefits letter from our insurance company and noticed that Gess met his out-of-pocket max in February this year. The downside is that means we have paid a lot of money this year already. The upside is that we will pay less for the rest of the year. We still have office visit, ER, and prescription co-pays, which add up, but are much less than the 20% of the service charge for other stuff. I am so thankful that we have this type of medical coverage that allows Gess to get any treatment he needs without us worrying (too much) about the cost. But of course, with that comes the fear of losing health insurance for whatever reason, but we won't go there today ;)
