Sort of defeats the purpose, doesn’t it?

Scott drove with Mackenzie to have his blood drawn on Friday morning. Getting his cholesterol checked is part of a biometric screening that reduces our health insurance premiums each month by $20. Cool idea, no?

Well, Scott returned home and remarked, “That was one expensive blood draw.” Apparently the brakes had locked on a slippery turn on the way to the office and the car had slid and hit a stop sign.

He and Mackenzie didn’t even feel the impact but her door was pretty crumpled. Although it still opens just fine, the first repair estimate we sought out topped $1800. Makes $20/month savings look a little anemic.

But hey, his cholesterol was 147 and that’s good news. To our health! 😉
