Why America Sucks Pt. 235

  • Aug. 1st, 2007 at 11:23 PM
Mr. Mike
So, Amelia is in Tennessee and is in need of another batch of immunizations. I am insured in New York through Independent Health. Apparently, my insurance will not cover my daughter getting her shots while in Tennessee, because it isn't an emergency nor a pre-existing condition. They won't pay for the shots which will prevent her from perhaps getting a disease that they will later have to pay through the ass for, because she's not actually *in* New York state.

Does anybody else find this complete fuckery?

Once more, I am tempted to run off to Canada and tell America to go fuck itself.

One of the reasons that I love you is because you agree with me ;)

That is seriously fucked up.

Shots shouldn't be that expensive at an honorable doctor. Maybe a doctor will charge less if they know the situation?

UGh.. that's a shitty shitty situation :(

Again, I'd like to point out that America sucks, and we should all become Canadian.

However, in the short term, the girl still needs her shots, and so whatever the price must be, it must be.

Ugh. How soon til the family is home, then?

Ya know, in Europe, everybody gets free health care, too.

Ah, the family might not be coming home... I'll pop up a bigger entry about this soon, but our current plan is leaning toward moving back to California, where my family is, which in my opinion is better than moving to Tennessee any day.

And so I shall remain a lonely boy here for a while longer, it appears...
