Hi y’all. I’m back in AR, USA now. I’m teaching again this year, but I took the year off last year, thinking I would not return. Alas, I was convinced to return to the classroom this year, and will likely stay until the Kitten has graduated in two years. (Can you believe my Kitten is a high school Jr?!)
While I was not teaching last year, I was selling health insurance, mostly Medicare. If you’re American, 65 or older, and maintain a residence in the US, you can take advantage of health insurance benefits you paid taxes for when you lived and worked in the US. I’m licensed in 31 states, so chances are good I could help you with this. And there are penalties for not getting enrolled as soon as possible (three months before your 65th birthday), so ask if you have questions.
And I KNOW this is reading like an advert. It kind of IS, but I meant it to be helpful. I never thought of anything like this while I was on the island. Taiwan was home and had great health care. Hell, Taiwan is STILL home, but I haven’t been home in a very long time. When I got the email notice about old Forumosans and trying to get them to post again, I thought about all the OLD Forumosans and how maybe they could use some information.
Please, though, feel free to do with this post as you see fit.
