2 things before tap

1) my insurance company will pay 80% of my Gardisil treatment, if I choose to get it. Gotta find out how much the whole thing costs so I can figure out how much 20% is so I can decide to get it or not. Sigh. I hate my insurance.

2) I KNOW I didn't order anything to be shipped fedex to my apartment. What the heck is in Forney, Texas anyway? Is someone sending me something? PAIN IN THE ASS FED EX. I HATE YOU.

My old insurance wouldn't pay for it ;(

I hear it's a really painful injection ...:( I'm kind of waiting to learn more, since it's so new, before I do the gardasil thing

It's already required by many school districts at the age of 9 and it is not recommended after the age of 26. Ask your OBGYN about it and see what they say. I was leery, but after our little chat she had me convinced. She basically said, "how can you be against preventing cancer?" hehe

I'm not at ALL against it, it's just that there haven't been any long-term side effects studied. So I'm really wary.

My super research results
"Gardasil is a series of three injections (costing approximately $120 per shot) over a six-month period."
~~from this article

"The retail price of the vaccine is $120 per dose ($360 for full series)."
~~from CDC website

However, there was one response on this blog post which seems to imply after doctor and storage fees, it might be closer to $500 per shot.

I can think of a few other things to consider, but even if the shots total $1500, that's $500 per shot, each shot I guess being 2 months spread.. if they cover 80%, that'd mean you'd only have to foot $50 per month. Not too pocketbook intensive...

I hope this helped... somehow...
