sorry to rant, but I've had my own health care frustrations recently...

BCBS HMO is also the care group that decided that it was reasonable that, after working hard to pay them through COBRA, to take 3-4 WEEKS to tell my primary care group that I had insurance again and not tell me that they would do that until I tried to use my insurance.

Said event lead to me having to reschedule a shrink appt that they wouldn't cover otherwise (good thing I got better instead of worse after my major depressive incident back in LATE JUNE) and having to wait to get a referral for an ENT (to figure out why I had an ear infection that stuck around after three different types of antibiotics including Levaquin which knocked me out so much that I'm still sleeping 11 hours a night weeks later).

Yeah, I'm not amused by all the people saying there's nothing wrong with the healthcare system and I kinda want to force feed them Levaquin. Side note, it's been suggested to me that the "cold" that I had for 2+ weeks that started a good chunk of this was probably H1N1.

To those people who don't believe that something needs to change with health care in America: you are idiots.

I am a member of the elite: highly educated, white, and enough leisure time on my hands to be infuriated about and active in countering social injustices directed at people not in my social demographic. My job, now and henceforth, is the education of American college students.

I do not have health insurance.

Yes. I agree with your statement. More than words can convey.

You might consider switching to Cigna if it's an option in SoCal...I've had a decent experience with them.

You rock. With you all the way on the need for health care reform, from extending medical care to all to fixing the many problems (incentives in the wrong place, overspending on end-of-life care, unnecessary overtreatment at all stages of life, ineffective procedures, Big Pharma, blah blah blah, you can right the rant too).
