2010 a Year Without Healthcare

As 2009 came to a close my Cobra health insurance came to an end. Even though I am overall healthy and athletic I have a long and complicated medical history, a small portion of which I have documented HERE and HERE.

On the directive of a nurse practitioner at a Walgreens walk-in clinic I went to the Clybourn Medical Center. The Walgreens Clinic is $85.00 to see a nurse practitioner. The Clybourn Clinic is $40.00 AND they have a pharmacy on site where I got TWO prescriptions for only FIVE dollars. AMAZING! Conveniently located in Cabrini Green (or what little is left of it) I highly recommend it to anyone! The doctor and pharmacist were very pleasant and knowledgeable.

I've seen that building so many times and thought it was out of service. Wonder how long it will stay around with the homes being knocked down. That mural church nearby is pretty cool.

Same here Terri! I was pretty surprised when that is where the address took me. I hope it stays open for a long time or at least until I get some insurance.
