Oohlala, This Feels Good!



I wish someone had told me sooner that my insurance covers massages--yeah, yeah, I should have investigated.



I went for a massage today after getting a prescription (only covers you if you have a doctor's prescription) from the doctor. With my thesis in full-swing and me up at odd hours of the night and sometimes in the lab till 10pm, the doctor didn't even blink when I asked her how do I go about if I wanted a massage.

She just said "oh, you need a prescription" and handed me one.


The massage therapist asked what my complaint was and when I said "STRESS!", laughed and said "fair enough!".


By the looks of how much the plan covers, I might actually be able to squeeze in a massage once every week before school ends in about 2 months! This is taking into account the fact that I have to pay about $10 per visit (co-pay).

Woohoo!

Wow, massages included? That's not bad! Though it wouldn't make any difference to me personally...I don't like massages. lol

You have to be kidding! You get to go to a spa and they pay for it?

Dear Daphne...

I think the insurance company should consider investing in Malaysia.. :)

Hi everyone,

Sorry it has taken so long to reply!

Hi Anon 07:28,

I really don't know? You will have to check with your healthcare provider (haha, I sound like a commercial!)...Good luck!

Hi WP,

Yeah, it's included. You get a certain amount only (I think I can get ten 30-min massages?), but hey, better than nothing!

Too bad you don't like massages. You're not the first one I've heard who doesn't like it too...

Hey Ae Mi,

I would love to come to London again. I keep getting notices for cheap fare there (about $500 return) but it's always for that week only. And not like I have $500 to spare anyway! Lol...

But someday?

Daphne Ling said...

Hi Nightwing,

Yeah!

Hey Jealous,

Well, it's not a spa per se...It's with a massage therapist! But it's the same to me. All I want is the massage...

Hi Uncle Jimmy,

I don't know how that's gonna work out really. You would think it would be great but I think it's a lot more 'un-doable' at this point than we think!
