Health Care System Idiocy

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:14 am by Martin

I just lost my dentist. Not “lost” as in “I lost my keys”. He also didn’t get lost. He’s still here. He didn’t retire. But still, I can’t go to my dentist anymore because our company’s dental health insurance plan changed from last year to this year. So even though I just had an appointment about a month ago and I still have a lot of things to get done with my teeth, I can no longer go to my dentist because a change in insurance means that you’re effectively a new patient and they currently don’t accept any new patients at my dentist’s office. How crazy is that? It’s ridiculous. I had dentists retire on me, but never refuse to keep me around as a (paying, I might add) patient!
