Some may know – especially those who have been following my most recent blogs related to a return of Prostate Cancer that I’ve been dealing with – but today was a Red Letter day when it comes to Health Insurance, Health Insurance Companies and how they ethically (oops unethically) deal with their customers. I am not sure how we got here, but where we are when it comes to our health and how that is paid for is so broken it’s quite unbelievable.
WHAT’S THE SCOOP?
Today was a follow up visit with my local doctor. Nothing special and almost a waste of time, but the appointment was scheduled and kept. Routine visit – weight, blood pressure, temperature, and nothing unusual. Today I was to receive the results of my bone scan and CT scan, but since I got a CD with the data ready to send to the Mayo Clinic (which of course I read – not that I’m a doctor, but I can read, and a report that says nothing was found was exactly what I was expecting), which I sent, I knew the outcome before the visit.
