Amazing, really...........I can get better health insurance for my horses through an Equine Wellness Program, which I've previously posted about and pay less for than paying through the nose for my own insurance and jumping through tremendous hoops to get really very simple answers! Note to self, add UnitedHealthCare Insurance and Pharmacare/CVS to now growing longer "when I go postal, who will I take out list".
Hello????????????? I work in health care and must carry health insurance in order to keep my job. My portion of what I pay to keep my health insurance is approximately $4,000 a year, not including co-pays for visits and prescriptions, in spite of using Walmart pharmacy. And the extra costs for such things as MRI's and labs. Of which , I actually just finished paying of a co-pay of $350 for an MRI that was charged in the new year last year to get more money out of me than having met my family or personal total cost for that year, just so that I can get charged again!
Further more, I must fight tooth and nail for everything! I have just spent , I kid you not, the last 4 months on the phone with my Health Insurance and various "specialty" pharmacies just trying to find out what my new co-pay will be for my MS drug!
And not only did I have to supply my health care provider(insurance company) with proof of Zoe's full-time student status, fair enough, but my Employer, excuse me, requested that I provide proof of her birth 19 years ago and my marriage 6 years ago and proof of her student status! WTF? I pay for my insurance through my benefits package and out of my paycheck and that was good enough for the health insurance company. Tell me WHY then must I provide proof to my F-ing employer who actually had the balls to toy with the possibility of not giving ANY merit raises this year, yet the CEO walks home with a million dollars a year! F**K You!
OMG! I'm so pissed! So pissed!
