Health Insurance Blues

My birthday was last week, and for a nice birthday present, Blue Cross terminated my insurance coverage.  Surprise!

Apparently, when you turn 26, you are no longer covered by your parents’ insurance plan.  I knew that at some point, but I guess I forgot to deal with it ahead of time.  I suppose it got lost in the shuffle of looking for next year’s internship, keeping up with my coursework, getting married, etc.

Thankfully, although my parents can no longer cover me through their health insurance, they are quite supportive, and they are helping me find a new plan as quickly as possible.  In the meantime, I’m going to try really hard not to get sick or injured.

Hey everyone, my name is Sam Skeen. I’m currently a third year PsyD student. I’m primarily interested in individual therapy with adults and adolescents and assessment with people of all ages. This year, I’m doing my field placement work at Joseph M. Smith Community Health Center, where I am learning to conduct therapy in Spanish. I also have a part time job at MSPP’s Academic Resource Center, where I help other MSPP students complete challenging academic tasks. In my spare time, I like to exercise, cook, mess with my cat (an activity that once screened me as a potential sociopath on a personality test), update my fantasy hockey lineup obsessively, and of course, satiate my Words with Friends addiction.
