Medical Stuff – An Update

July 11, 2017     The Bluestocking Bookworm     Personal, Random Thoughts

In June, I wrote a post about my medical costs and how they are a lot higher than anticipated and that I had lost my insurance. You are all lovely people and I received a lot of love and support following my post, for which I am eternally grateful.

In the time since that post (about a month) I have had a few new developments.

First is that we found some new insurance. It will cover all of my medicine anywhere from 50%-80% which is less than the 100% I had before, but it is a heck of a lot better than nothing. Also, all of my medicine is covered (as well as dental, glasses, etc.) which is pretty cool.

So my medical costs have dropped to just under half of what I was paying before. Hooray for that! $150 seems like a much more manageable number than $375 a month.


The other thing I have done is expand my affiliate network. The earnings from the affiliate links I post are small, but every little bit helps. If I can use the $12 in my PayPal account towards my phone bill, it helps.

I know a lot of people don’t like Amazon, and I would really rather you support your local independent bookstore myself. However, if you are going to be buying from Amazon anyways, I am now an affiliate in Canada, the US, and the UK. This also includes Audible and Kindle!

I am an affiliate for Chapters, which is an amazing option for Canadian customers who are buying physical books. I am also an affiliate for Book Depository, who ships almost everywhere international for free.

For e-books, I am a Kobo affiliate. You can purchase Kobo books anywhere in the world.

There are links for Book Depository and Chapters on the sidebar of my blog. I will be adding Kobo and Amazon soon (ish?). Otherwise, the purchase links in my book reviews are affiliate links.

Thank you everyone for your support. It means the world to me.

Stay bookish and be well, lovelies!
