    Rice hasn't given me any issues yet, but they did suture my gum, so that may be why I don't have to do the syringe routine.
    After my stint in government, I swore up down and sideways that ANY insurance had to be better than that. TxDOT's wasn't bad, but the City was on TML, and that just outright SUCKED. Unless you went to their chintzy ass clinic, they would fight you tooth and claw on paying for ANYTHING outside the dr. visit. What's that? You broke your toe and had to go the ER? That's nice, you shoulda gone to the clinic (that wasn't open on weekends and was half an hour away). Pay for it all yourself. Oh, your doc ordered a series of MRIs? Too bad, you shoulda gone to the clinic and had them misdiagnose you with pneumonia (true story, that was their favorite diagnosis.)

Cleanings are covered 100%, which is nice. I have FEPBlue Basic, if you're curious.
    Thanks I will look into it. Though, I should have started preventative care years ago. At this point most if not all would be out of pocket. It is one reason I do not bother with the gov't dental. That said, it is never too late to start. Hmm...though I guess it is since I just missed open season

    In college, the school's clinic was good for strep throat and STD testing. That's about it.

    In college, the Quack Shack was good for STD testing and the flu. If you went in for anything else, you walked out with a diagnosis for the flu or an ACE bandage.

    Ahhh, vitamin M...

    Aren't you a veteran? Did you retire? If you did, you should be qualified to receive tricare. As a tricare member, you'd qualify for United Concordia dental which is pretty dang good, in my opinion.

    The FEPBlue Basic allows me to see any doctor I want, without a referral, as long as they participate in the PPO. As luck would have it, my doctor in a covered doc... But I've not had any issues with them. I even saw a psychiatrist with no issues.

    The dental does suck though - like I said, covers only preventive care.

    Lucky for me, family coverage through my husband's policy was no different cost-wise if he included just the kids or me and the kids, so I'm on his insurance too, which helps keep the doc bills down, but not down enough that we're free of doctor bills... Just relatively free of doctor bills for me - partly b/c of the insurance, and partly b/c I rarely go to the doctor anymore since quitting antidepressants. I think the only reason I've seen a doctor since starting primal was for a well-woman check - there again, preventive care, 100% covered by my FEPBlue policy.

    Had quail, sweet potato fries, two Guinness, and fried okra for dinner at a local bar for the ASCE social dinner. Only broke my low end caloric intake by 40 calories, even with the beer. 1765 cal, 87g fat, 84g protein, 117g carbs, and 27g alcohol.

    I didn't retire. I do go to the VA for my service connected issues and the gov't health insurance is not bad at all. The dental though, as you mention, leaves much to be desired. Luckily I live a stone's throw from Mexico.
