So here I am procrastinating from working on the appeal I am writing to my HMO. They are (of course) denying coverage for anything that approaches REAL care. The saddest part of that being that even though I live in a major metro area, and have ever since I have been dealing with major medical issues, I can't find doctors that actually sort anything out where I live. So I HAVE to go 2,927 miles east to find specialists that understand what is going on with my body. What part of piles of doctors, lots of tests, lots of $$$, no answers, bad treatment and mental anguish=local. One specialist unit, some tests, in the end a lot less $$$, some real freakin answers=out of town specialists can't they understand? Oh, right. Medical justification only. Let me lay it out real easy for you. One line appeal.
It will cost you less money to do it this way.
So here I am writing justifications to a pile of mental arguments that I can hear the appeals board coming up with, trying to answer any and all arguments in a single letter. Of course these arguments each require a lot of research since I am suddenly dealing with a lot of issues that I know only a little about.
Searches bring me to more interesting things to read (like Ghetto River Nymph's blog) which distracts me into responding to her, which distracts me into setting up my own blog. What was I doing? Oh, right.
