Question of the Day

Inspired by this post at Chris' place: Do you have health insurance and/or some other kind of healthcare coverage, e.g. Medicare/Medicaid? (Or do you live in a country with universal healthcare?) If you have insurance, do you get it through your job, your partner's job, through a private insurer? If you don't have health coverage, when was the last time you had it? Have you tried to get coverage and been denied?

I am extremely fortunate and privileged to have health insurance through Iain's job. If I didn't have the privilege of marriage, or if his company didn't extend partner benefits, I would be without healthcare—because I sure couldn't get private insurance. Even thinking about it makes me panicky.
