… but didn’t.
My question is – remind me please why I have Private Health Insurance?
Furious is how I feel today.
I NEEDED to see a particular Doctor (a specialist), but after years of dealing with him there is nothing gained by ringing his office direct. So, my usual course of action is to see my GP and get him to ring through to the specialist on my behalf. BUT today, my usual GP was unavailable, so was my ‘back-up’ one. So I groaned, but went with someone I do not know.
So of course nothing was achieved. She rang the specialist, as I requested, to be told I would have to wait a month to see him (???). Ok, I was not impressed because I don’t think I can wait a month! I think my usual Dr would have pushed further. But the new Dr said to me “go to the public emergency if you are really sick…”
Do you think that was a good idea?? I mean, I am not dying and I am not an emergency. AND after 14 years of knowing what I am talking about, do you know it would have taken me hours to explain to the public emergency hospital why I was there and what I wanted? They would have known nothing about what I needed and it would have been a waste of their time.
I see the specialist as a Private Patient and he makes great money from me!!! He has for years and years. Really, these Dr’s need to know when someone needs to see them!
So, today I am a little angry and hurt. We have no Private Emergency Hospital here in Wagga, so anyone who lives here knows you avoid the public system if you have private insurance.
Anyway, there is no real point in going on about it I guess. I will have to wait.
“It is what it is.” Just venting.
