      I've been trying to decipher dental for years.

      The "hmo" (company taking their cut of the government money and reducing actual services to those in need)  for Oregon's dental plan keeps trying to send me to another county to get dental care. Before they would try and send me to the county indigent dental so I guess it is an improvement. Every time I try and go to the dentist on their online list they tell me I'm ineligible.

      It is god damn Kafkaesqe.

      I would rather just die than endure more torture at their hands. I can't sit or stand for 15 minutes without pain so dealing with these bureaucracies and having it take hours of my time isn't worth the effort. And even when I do get care it is either mid twentieth century barbaric or medication undesirable enough to be on the "hmo's" formulary. Medications I have a tendency to react horribly to consistently. I'm aware that I have a host of genetic and physical ailments that make me a difficult patient, but isn't that why the alternate drugs and methods were developed in the first place?
