No delete Tuesday
(It is Tuesday isn't it? Darn that fibro fog)
I'm just going to vent as it comes out, no editing, no thinking it over, just how I feel
I've spent most of the day on the phone with the insurance company. I seriously want to bang my head against a wall right now, except for I already have a headache from talking to the insurance company. I'm trying to set up IV antibiotics in a last attempt to fight Lyme disease. I thought my insurance would refuse to pay for it because it's for Lyme, but no they are refusing to pay for it because the provider is out of network. The best part is there are NO providers in network within 100 miles of the city of Houston. So they cover it, but they don't actually cover it because there are no providers. I mean, it's not like I live in podunkville- I live in the 4th largest city in the United States of America, and there are no providers by me.
This just highlights to me the problems we have in this country with healthcare. What exactly is the point of paying 400 a month for healthcare that I am not receiving? This exact same situation happened to my sister only in her case they took a med-flight because my nephew's head injury and their bill was to the tune of 25,000. This is happening to good hard working Americans, the ones who are doing the right thing and forking over half their income to cover their healthcare premium. It is just beyond ridiculous. I love my country, but we are broken. We can't get anything useful done in our government so America's citizens suffer. I'm not even sure why we try to work hard and pay for our needs anymore, we might as well just jump on the "government will pay for everything" bandwagon instead of supporting ourselves since the government and every company out there is trying to screw us.
Thanks for reading my rant, I'm finding it hard to have faith in humanity right now so if anything good has happened to you lately, I'd like to hear it.
