My wife is getting the run around. For an ultrasound.
It's a long story but the insurance company has denied the claim, then approved the claim, then denied it, then said it's pending, then paid it, then said it's denied and now pending again.
No one seems to know what is happening.
And we have great insurance.
We need a serious change. The public option for a small number is not enough. The status quo is unacceptable. My wife said, "I don't understand how we have a public education system that basically says we have found a way for every child in the U.S. to have an education... but we can't figure out how to get everyone health coverage."
Health care is a right. It should not be a for profit business that gives incentives to deny you care... Care you and your employer pay for. Care that is there to make you better, but is more interested in keeping you sick.
We have insurance and we're still nervous.
