As some of you know, I managed to break my femur back in December. Still working on the healing process.
I have, I think very good insurance where I work, of the $60,000 plus total cost so far, I'm only out of pocket for about $3500.00
* I was lucky to have a job that never stopped paying me because I had some vacation time to use plus they let me work from home for a couple of months. ( Would you be so lucky?)
Back in Nov of 2008 I had the chance to sign up for Aflac insurance which pays direct to you when you do something like I did.
( Available at my work as an option )
At the time I did not sign up because that would have been like betting I would get hurt, right? No one plans to get hurt right?
Fast guy Gregg(Kona rider) pointed out to me recently that I really should have signed up, because that would have paid me about $14K.
(More than enough for another Ellsworth!)
Gegg markets various health insurance plans, including Aflac
So... if you ride, expecially if you ride hard and sometimes hit the ground hard, you might want to give Gregg a shout and ask him how cheap he can sign you up with Aflac.
Monthly cost might be less than a typical large Pizza and your favorite beer, depending on your age.
Gegg would not stump for business here, but I have no problem making you aware of something that could really be a help to you or your family if end up getting hurt in some way.
No, Gegg probably won't make enough $$ to get off the Kona and buy an American made bike ( Ellsworth!) if everyone signs up with him, but I hope you check this out anyway. http://www.aflac.com/us/en/individuals/accidentdisability.aspx
Send me a note if you want Gregg's contact info.
