A private insurer does something right.

Get me a fainting couch, few but loyal readers, because I am stunned, dizzy, and very discombobulated.

(Also I did promise to publicize this, so here goes.)

An old friend advised that their COBRA health insurance had lapsed for no reason.  The company was handling the premiums via automatic debit, and stopped doing so.  Of course the policy lapsed, leaving my friend holding the bag for a possible monthly out of pocket prescription bill of $2700

It is being reinstated.

(It will take 7-10 business days to take effect so he’ll still have to pay 950 this month…but…


Whomever worked with him at the insurer and the insurer’s decision maker in this instant should get a raise and /or eventually supervise.
