I work full time for the Federal Government in Washington DC and have "the best insurance I can buy". Well that is what I thought until I went to my preop appointment today and they told me that I had to pay over $500.00 for my surgery in two days. I was so pissed. Are you kidding me? I work everyday, full time and bust my butt literally working my fingers to the bone and I have to pay to have a necessary surgery? Get real man! No payments, no billing, just pay it. Well thanks for the heads up.
If that wasn't bad enough, after the lady tells me that, I said well I suppose I don't need to see the doctor today since I can't pay that my husband lost his job 6 months ago. So what does she do? She walks out to the receptionist in front of 3 other customers and about 3 employees and says refund her co-pay she can't afford the co-pay. Oh my God, I wanted to die. I can afford the co-pay stupid cow, I can't afford to pay for the surgery.
What is the world coming to that someone who works, and pays for insurance can't get a necessary surgery because they don't trust me to pay later? I am so pissed this world sucks and people are so rude.
What now you may ask? I suppose eventually something good will happen and my faith in this crap shoot of a world will be restored.
