    When was the last time you had a good check up at the doctor's?

    Going for one checkup this week then I will schedule my annual test as well.

    I'm going to wait for my full physical until March because that is when the new year kicks in for our insurance and I'll use the moolah to go towards next year's deductible.

    October 2011. Previous to that it was April 2010. I'm going in later this week. Under ObamaCare you are allowed one free well visit per year. People ought to take advantage of it.

    I love that word 'FREE" - it is NOT free- someone has to pay for it.

    I went a few weeks ago. Prior to that my last physical was July of 2001, just before I ETSed and rotated back to the states.

    When I went a few weeks ago it was to the local VA clinic, and supposedly it was free, however they billed my civilian insurance for just shy of $200 (which they refused to pay). I'm still waiting to see how this shakes out.


    Salty is right about the misnomer "free". "Free" is a filthy word in many cases these days.
