Unless you work for the federal, state or oil government you are probably getting totally screwed by your insurance company.
You pay and pay, by a garnishment from your hard-earned paycheck and then they have the UNMITIGATED GALL to withhold coverage if they deem you do not need the Health Care for cancer. I am not talking plastic surgery here, or pain medication management.
They may wait so long as to stop or delay your treatment dangerously, or you must pay all of your savings and use credit cards upfront in hope that they will reimburse you.
And hospitals are like airports and movie theaters when it comes to overpricing and gouging you as a "captive audience."
Topping it all off is that the machine had Ted Stevens removed so no one down there actually gives squat about you and me anymore. Just die faster, right?
The hospital is great otherwise, all of those working there are just keeping up with
a tsunami of cancer patients. And to their credit, they won't refuse you service if you are broke.
