Insurance companies

Do you have it and does it cover your needs?

Hey Guys,
I am back. Had to go to the psych ward. They adjusted stuff. Feeling physically bad. Anyway insurance companies mess with the mentally ill. High med prices, expensive medical care & lack of resources. The mayor closed down 4 outpatient mental health facilities for people with no insurance or if they need a sliding scale fee. There still stigma out there in our government. It stinks

Hi Robinrules. I assume you mean the U.S. - yes our overall medical structure sucks bad. Happen to flip on the Michael Moore film about it the other day. So sad.

On a personal note I have a heart condition (along with my flipping MI) and the doc said i need angioplasty BUT he has to wait and do more test to justify to the insurance company. What bs.

Wish it was controlled by the almighty dollar here as it is.

Anyways glad you are back and hope things are well.

Greatly, have suffered greatly, both with those
