Ugh. So, I went to see a corneal specialist because I had this reoccurring inflammation in my eye. He listed out a bunch of prescriptions and said I needed to put this plug in my tear duct. It didn't seem like a big deal and he just took it out of the draw. The first problem came along when he prescribed me something that cost 80 dollars. I definitely refused that and instead got something cheaper that would be just as affective. The biggest problem though was how much the tear duct plug was. One month later, I get a bill for 300 dollars!!!
I know I was wrong in that I didn't ask how much it would cost me, but shouldn't there be some responsibility in informing customers about cost when prescribing things that are just way too much for a normal person to afford? I called member services and he said that doctors usually don't know the cost of the things they prescribe! Are you kidding me? How can you prescribe something and not know what kind of financial affect it will have on someone? Physical health is one thing, but financial health is higher on my list.
Anyway I canceled my insurance, and have preferred death over paying a stupid fat insurance company bent on taking every last penny from their "customers."
