Guess it is, just a tad. But that was my last encounter ( three weeks ago today) with a doctor. Have had one pacer check and a couple of wound checks at the cardiology office since then, but those were with a nurse and pacer clinic technician not the
doc himself. Next doc visit is in two weeks.

All is very well. I'm feeling great, soooooo much better. Thanks for the well wishes!

Right?

She is now the Bionic Travelassie!!

I see my RA quarterly because of the meds I take, I think I now have to see Pain Mgmt quarterly for the meds I take...

I had some left side weakness in high heat, steep mountain climb, so I saw a cardiologist, got the all clear, and then a neurologist who is sending me for an MRI.

The doctors around you refuse to take a patient without insurance?

Urgent care around me is $150 without insurance. It's double that if you have insurance.

I have Medicare which is wonderful when I need it, but don't love to camp out in doctor's offices and I know many do. I see it in personal friends who constantly go to docs and some of us love to avoid and be our own doc as much as we have learned "how to"..

That would be unusual. The insurance company negotiates a lower rate for an urgent care center that is in network. The patient pays his copay, which is only part of the negotiated fee. The insurance company is billed the full fee but pays only the allowed amount minus the copay, which is patient responsibility.

If the urgent care is out of network or the patient has no insurance he will pay the full fee. Insured patients can file their own claims to get reimbursed for part of the cost of out of network care if their policy includes out of network coverage.

There cannot be one fee schedule for insured patients and another for uninsured patients.

most recent: family doctor for pinkeye.

the prescription: i am a guy, and i have to use an eyelash curler.


story:
doctor says my version of pink eye is viral. no cure. it "goes away" on its own (it did).
but, she asks: "do you know one of your lashes curls up like it should, be the other curls down?"
well, no....so i looked in the mirror. yep. the right one. she said after the pink eye "goes away" it is
possible to re-infect because the virus lives on the eyelash for a while, and since it curls down, it raises
the potential of more pink eye. she said to buy my very own curler, and do NOT use my wife's because
it could contaminate her. this, along with the make-up i used to cover the skin cancer removal scabs
on my face (all fine, now), makes me wonder if should choose a shade of lipstick.

Dentist. I never had my wisdom teeth removed, and one was causing me problems, so I had it extracted last week.
