    Okay, it's an allergy test, so it's covered (the brochure says all testing is covered).

    WRONG.......the test is covered......the materials aren't, in which case the
    testing isn't covered (without the materials, there's no damned test, boys and girls).

    Parse it however the hell you want to, but a lie is a lie.

    Same thing happened to me when I was referred to a allergist by my primary care doctor. The test itself was 600.00.
    My Insurer refused to pay at first, saying it wasn't covered. Then they said the allergist wasn't part of the network and
    he wasn't covered.

    In the end my Insurer paid all of the bill when I reminded them that THEY were the ones who referred me to the specialist. (an error on their part)
    I hate dealing with Insurance companies.

    Gov. Romney is a complete tool.

    The Republicans couldn't have chosen a worse candidate is it had been scripted as a bad political comedy.

    ABout the only thing he "fixed" in Massachusetts was the state budget....sort of......he screwed every municipality in the state in the process and forced cities and towns to jack property taxes, but he "fixed" the state budget.

    I've said it once, I'll say it again: The man is a used car salesman with a billion dollar bankroll.

    I gotcha......I don't care for either, either.

    But the lamest, moronic idea is that HC will be 'reformed' by stupid men who have no idea as to how it needs to be reformed.

    I do not know everything about HC, but I know enough to say that the whole system is broken and promising reforms by putting "HC within everyone's reach" is just blowing smoke up everyone's rear.

    Perhaps then, instead of stupid men...some smart women ought to be in charge of fixing it.

    Kidding aside "stupid men" is the sort of generalized ad hominem comment that stands in the way of getting things done.

    A used car salesman or a community organizer that is more community than organization.

    I hope that people are ready for change.



    Please re-elect President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho.

    I have to admit that if the legislature was populated with like-minded people that are interested in running the country, President Obama would be very effective. However, we have several agenda driven politicians on all sides that remind me of a Kipling quote.

    Gimme What You Got
    -d. henley


    Baby picks off your plate--yours looks better
    And she throws hers on the floor
    Here, in the home of the brave
    And the land of the free
    The first word that baby learns is more


    So you're out there floating like a big, puffy cloud
    With the pool and the charcoal
    And the kids and the wife
    Til the reruns of your dreams are interrupted
    And you step out into life


    And it's still gimme, gimme what you got
    Gimme, gimme what you got
    I said gimme, gimme what you got
    (I want it, I want it)
    Gimme, gimme what you got


    Now it's take and take takeover, takeover
    It's all take and never give
    All these trumped up towers
    They're just golden showers
    Where are people supposed to live?

    You can arm yourself, alarm yourself
    But there's nowhere you can run
    Cause a man with a briefcase
    Can steal more money
    Than any man with a gun


    I said gimme, gimme what you got
    Said gimme, gimme what you got
    Gimme, gimme what you got
    Gimme, gimme what you got


    You got the price of admission--
    You don't have to ask permission
    To take somethin' from another man
    You cross a lawyer with the godfather, baby
    Make you an offer that you can't understand


    From Main Street to Wall Street to Washington
    From men to women to men
    It's a nation of noses pressed up against the glass
    They've seen it on the TV
    And they want it pretty fast


    You spend your whole life
    Just pilin' it up there
    You got stacks and stacks and stacks
    Then, Gabriel comes and taps you on the shoulder
    But you don't see no hearses with luggage racks


    Gimme, gimme what you got
    I said gimme, gimme what you got
    I said gimme, gimme what you got
    (I want it, I want it)
    Gimme, gimme what you got
    The secret of life is nothing at all

    I wonder what a Dem would have done?

    http://news.yahoo.com/gop-freshman-a...-politics.html

    Waited for Obama to sign the "Medicine by the Road Act"?


    Healthcare for everyone at the roadside?

    I am curious....who are you suggesting does not have the brains to do the work?

    It reminds me of an saying...if you want to get something done...find the busiest person you know...

    Working hard these days are we?

    I am always amused (to quote) by people who are full of opinions about how stupid other people are...while failling to offer an evidence of intelligence themselves!

    Wheeeeeeee.......

    Back when I was working the trend was moving towards hiring people with college degrees.

    Hmm, hokay.........that should help the cause.

    On two occasions people were hired to work with me that had degrees and no background in healthcare. It was frustrating because they asked questions and when they heard the truth or facts?

    They chose to ignore the facts and move in their direction.

    They were let go after less than a year.

    -------------

    I outlasted four bosses in 7 years (they were doing a job I had held for 10 years at another facility) -the job was salaried so they didn't feel the need to work to get the job done, my co-worker and I had to clean up the messes.

    So, when I see a used car salesman and a community organizer try to come in and change a system THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT, its pretty effing scary.

    Either one will hand it off to a subordinate -with god knows what agenda fuels them - say that THIS is the direction HC needs to go in...

    You can bet your bottom dollar that some AH lobbyist will grease the wheels in order to get his company or products put into the system.

    I am glad I am not a young person starting off in this day and age.

    Our government -no matter who is in charge - has killed any idea as to what an American Dream is or should be.

    HC is something that needs to be fixed NOW.

    Revisit the thread in a few years - talk to some physician/surgeon/care giver and see what they think - you may be a little surprised.

    Here's an update about the woman who was charged 83,000 dollars for treatment of a scorpion bite..

    She was charged 1,300 dollars for an ER visit.

    She was charged 39,000 dollars for two doses of an anti-venom for scorpion bites called ANASCORP.

    Her bill is being amended.

    Apparently ANASCORP is manufactured in Mexico and sold there for .......

    100 Dollars a dose.

    Yes, let's give insurance to everyone and let the prices fall where they may?
