    I, for one, am so excited about our republicans killing healthcare reform. I mean I was so happy to go to a doctor clinic today and feel the freedom of healthcare. I mean I only had to fill out like 10 pieces of paper and show my insurance card but boy they did give me alot of time in the waiting room to fill it out. Not only did I have an awesome time waiting for over an hour to get a physical, but I got to see many sick people who were waiting for more than a couple hours.

    I also had to talk to four different office assistants about my insurance and what they would cover. Also while up there I saw the assistants dealing with different paperwork from different insurance companies and all on the phone talking with insurance companies.

    Thank god we are trying to stop healthcare from becoming something better. Awesome.

    when I take my son to the doctor who is on state medical, the only paperwork I fill out is on his progress and if I have any medical concerns. I also go to an office where they see many people on state medical, the only time I have had to wait longer then five minutes is when I was late for an appointment and they had to fit him in which they did. He has an awesome doctor who takes plenty of time to talk to me about my concerns.
    Last week when I was sick and called the office to see if I should bring him or what I should do to treat him, I also got to talk to his doctor directly.

    There is this really great thing called "having a regular physician" that you go to for things like physicals and other minor ailments. You fill out paperwork when going to see a doctor that you've never seen before so that they know your medical history. Just because you walk in the door for the first time doesn't mean they can look at you and know all there is to know. You discuss your insurance coverage with the staff because they have no magic crystal ball that tells them what a NEW patient's insurance will or will not cover. Does that kind of thing allude you? I walk in my doctors office and am seen usually within 5 minutes of checking in. They have all my information on hand so there is only the sign in sheet that I have to deal with.

    Now, that wasn't so hard was it?

    I have the same experience as you. Regular doctor and so on. Friendly greeting at the front desk and pretty rapid progress into the exam room and then a friendly meeting with the doctor who has a good sense of humor which is needed for any annual post 50 year old physical.

    Our friend who started the thread must have been on his forst visit to a doctor or was visiting a hospital E-Room.

    If not, this sounds like a good time to change doctors.

    If this is your first visit to a doctor, you will find this to be true or you will be dead as they give you something that you are allergic to. Regarding insurance, try going anywhere else to get something for nothing and you will find that the seller is going to cross t's and dot i's also to assure payment from the source.

    I heard the Cash for Clunkers program had 139 pages of instructions to get the money off the auto purchase. This was a single payer program.

    I heard that the $4500 dollar cash for clunker rebate was taxable income for those who recieved it. Was this true?

    I posted alomost this same message yesterday, but seems relevant here.
    I have insurance through my work, but just bought private insurance for wife and son. My wife went to the doctor with our $4000.00 yr insurance. Copay was supposed to be 35.00. 2 weeks after our visit we recieved a bill from doctor for additional 15.00. Turns out insurance company only allowed 22.00. So thats what they paid. so, I pay 4000.00 a yr. appointments we pay 35.00 for. Insurance payes 22.00 each. WHAT A GREAT FUCKING SYSTEM. How can you ficking right wing fucks endorse that shit. This is some of the better insurance that can be privatley bought.
