Woke up early this morning, showered, and took some time puttering around before heading out for a day of tests. First I headed to the lab for my blood work. No issues there, and I must compliment the wonderful woman who drew my blood. She was good. Then, I had to head in the opposite direction for my Pet Scan. Didn't go so good there. Seems that my insurance hadn't approved it as yet. According to what was told to me, being that I am in a "Member"? plan, I have to wait for someone from member services to call me before I can make an appointment. What the heck does that mean? Who the heck is member services?
This after I stuck with a no-carbohydrate all day yesterday and nothing, not even a cup of coffee this morning. I'm not even going to mention my shattered nerves from worry. By the time I received this message, I was queasy, weak, and very cranky, but I credit myself in not taking my frustration out on the lovely woman in the lab.
Needless to say, I am peeved. I've paid my dues, almost $200 a month from my check, plus what my employer lays out to make out the different. For six years I've done this and never used my plan. Now comes the time when I really need it, and they make me jump through hoops. I shake my head here in wonder. There is definitely something wrong with our health care system.
Thanks for listening. I needed to get it out. Going to go take a snooze now and pretend today never happened.
