I'm sorry I didn't get around to visiting everyone yesterday. The morning started fine, I took the baby to get her shots, and it only took an hour this time. What hung me up, was when I went to get a prescription for test strips, (this was on Thursday), the pharmacy faxed the Dr. for a refill request. Here it was Tuesday, and the Pharmacy still hadn't heard back from the Dr. So I called the Dr. and they returned my call and said they never got a refill request. Then, come to find out since we switched insurance, the type of strips I needed weren't covered by the insurance, I had to call the Dr. and have them fax a prescription for the ones that are covered. So I spent a better part of my day going round in round with Dr.s, pharmacies, and insurance companies. It's all taken care of now, but I don't understand why everything has to be so difficult?

I won't start now...but, I HATE insurances and the mess they make of our health care. I have been seeing the same doctor for years. She recently moved to a new clinic and they don't take my insurance. Going out of network is a major pain...so, I can't see my doctor anymore. I don't know why it has to be so complicated. However an old saying comes to mind, "The root of all evil is the all mighty dollar."
