Health insurance reform

Aetna recently contacted my parents saying that because they provide less than 50% of my financial support, I am no longer eligible to be a dependent on the family health insurance plan. However, the new legislation passed by Congress seems to say that I can stay on the plan until I am 26. Can anyone clear up this confusion? [more inside]

Fear in the doctor's office

How do I deal with the fear of a painful medical test that I'm having in two weeks? The pain will be intense but short in duration, under 5 minutes. It's a simple procedure, done in the doctor's office, and afterwards I'll be able to do my normal activities and probably won't have any lingering sensations or discomfort. And yet, I'm having trouble summoning up the courage to go through with this, to the point where I'm becoming paralyzed with the fear. I would appreciate suggestions or anecdotes about how you overcame medical fear to do something you knew you had to do. [more inside]

Why do I have to have two MRI's?

I need an MRI of both my lower back and my left knee. The lady in scheduling told me I will have to be in the MRI for 40 minutes for my back, and then I'll come out and then have to go right back in for another 40 minutes for my knee. This doesn't seem right. Why can't I stay in the MRI machine for 40 minutes and then have my back and knee imaged at the same time? [more inside]
