I have complained about medical payments and doctor bills and cost of prescriptions. I love Rebecca's post today at http://shovedtothem.blogspot.com/. I think she's starting a new movement, one to anger out-of-network medical providers, to save her family's finances, so she and her family could feed their children.
Need to pay your rent and eat and put gas in your car?
Add Rebecca's addendum
"We refuse all non-emergent non-life-saving treatment by any physician or personnel who are considered 'out-of-network' by (our insurance company's name) when an 'in-network' alternative is available. Any 'out-of'network' care which is not necessary to save life or limb will be considered to have been performed pro-bono and will be treated in that manner."
when signing yourself or your child into the hospital.
I know medical school is expensive and so is hiring a staff, renting an office, etc., etc, and all that goes into having your own medical practice. But so is providing a roof over my head, buying groceries, paying for heat in the winter, etc, paying insurance premiums.
This is so sad, the state of health care in this country and our/my bitter angry feelings towards it.
