  •  It is just so sad (6+ / 0-)

    I have a Hungarian student who told me today that he would fly home for health care (he has Lyme disease) rather than check in a US hospital.  He is afraid he cannot afford to go to a US hospital even though he has student health care.

    Today I spent an hour on the phone trying to get my health care provider (BCBS) to recognize that the doctors I used in June actually are in their network and so I don't have to pay $250 deductible.   I told the lady on the phone that after living 27 years in Canada, I never had that kind of discussion before.  I just went to my Doctor and got treated.

    And we call ourselves a civilized country.
