I work, I pay for me and my son's health insurance - he still doesn't get coverage.

    I work full time and pay for myself and my son's health insurance through my employer.

    That's not good enough, though. Apparently not only do I need to pay for health care for my son, I've got to hope hard enough that the morons that run health insurance can get their idiotic minds together enough to actually give me what I pay for it.

    He was denied coverage for his 6 month vaccinations the other day. Some sort of paperwork glitch that according to CIGNA "happens all the time". No big problem - we just have to pay for everything out of pocket until CIGNA can figure out how to give me the product I paid for. Hope he doesn't get pneumonia or anything like that between now and ? when CIGNA feels like giving me the product I paid for. We've got a few thousand in the bank but nothing to cover a big medical event.

    Of course - I should have to worry about not having the money to pay for my son's medical expenses - I have health insurance, that's why I bought it - so that I would have to worry about paying for the big event.



    FUCK CIGNA - you guys are ASSHOLES>

    You don't want insurance for unforseen emergencies, you want 100% pre-paid medical for any and every contact with anyone in scrubs....Cheapskate.

    In my 35 year career, I've never had employer coverage of any kind. Not one cent.

    But good luck to ya, poopy pants. :thup:

    You will survive because you must. And that in itself is a great motivator.

    Agreed. This is why I can't understand why you'd support a law forcing us to deal with these kinds of companies.

    Cry me a river...That's what you get when you shirk your responsibilities off onto someone else.

    And it makes him a cheapskate in that he expects insurance -that which should be used for unforeseeable trauma or illness- to be a 100% pre-paid medical plan, that makes you entitled to have practically every contact with someone in a lab coat paid for by someone else....That attitude is to a great extent why our medical system is so fucked up.

    All I want is what I paid for


    That is way too much to ask.

    You rock. :thup:
    I so wish that I had a real job.
    But family called and I answered. My mistake. Or was it.
    I dunno.
    Fuck it.

    This is why I can't understand why Republicans want to do away with the requirement that hospitals give life saving emergency treatment to patients regardless of ability to pay. As it stands now, that law is the only thing that would keep my son alive if he gets into a bad accident or gets deadly sick.
