It’s a love/hate thing. I mean, I’m awfully glad we have it, especially since so many people don’t. But I hate that we HAVE to have it. That health care costs are so out of control hat we are basically forced to participate in a system that totally sucks. I could go on all day about my opinions about lots of things surrounding health insurance/health care, but….
The specific issue that has me seething today is a letter I recieved stating that visits to my endocrinologist and family doctor (who also serves as Munchkin’s pediatrician) will no longer be covered because the hospital they are both at is no longer “in network.” If you have been following me long, you probably remember that it took me FOREVER to finally find a family doctor, and that I was so frustrated that I actually switched when I was almost 8 months pregnant, and that there are only two endocrinologists in our area and one of them, the only one I can now see with our insurance, is the endocrinologist from HELL.
So where is all the “choice” that we supposedly have in our healthcare system right now???? Cause I really don’t see it…. (that question is for you, dad:-)
