Health, Wealth & Stupid: UnitedHealthCare vs. Baycare

A letter to editor about the health care dispute.

First, lets take the “Care” out of their corporate names. The only caring they do is to see how much money they can make and take. No concern about the tens of thousands of citizens they mentally torture and force to spend their holiday seasons worrying about changing doctors and finding new hospitals.

Seems, each contract year some health insurance company goes to battle with their network. Most come to terms at the final hour and all is well for another year. It’s always about the “All mighty buck”. No one, really, can figure the true cost of “In and Out of Network care” and that’s just the way they want it.

Bay, I will not use the word care in their name, just got fined a hugh sum of money for over billing Medicare. That seems to be a real easy target, just ask our current Governor. Over billing, up-coding procedures, and balance billing seem to be the game played. The losers are us. We’re always are the bottom of the financial feeding chain.

Please, United and Bay settle your differences and get back to providing quality health care at reasonable and transparent rates. You’re caused such anxiety to your doctors, enrollees and seniors that it may be “Medially Necessary” to seek psychological counseling. Is that covered under my plan?

To waited to see if they would reach an aggrement, had to enroll in another. I could have kept UH but in case of emergency would have to go to Brandon or Trinity to name 2. I live 2 miles from Mortan Plant not that the Baycare doctors are any good in any case. I had one I went to with a pain in my arm, in May at the time she told me to take aleve, went back in Sept with the same pain that had gotten worse, this time she suggested physical therapy, never sending me for an exray or mri. Chose another PCP sent me for an xray and an mri turns out I tore my rotator cup. I made it worse doing my exercise from May to October. Thanks a lot Dr. Peditto.
