Got my first-ever flu shot yesterday. At least I think it was my first ever. I don’t remember getting them as a kid.
When I was at the doctor’s office, I noticed he’s dropping my insurer. If I want to stay with him, I need to get health insurance through another provider. Of course, I don’t have much choice in the matter. My insurance is dictated by my employer. There’s no way I could afford to drop our group plan and buy my own insurance. Therefore I need to find a new doctor. So sayeth the Corpocracy.
What a system.
Update: Adding insult to injury, my insurer’s online directory of physicians in my neighborhood includes numerous listings for doctors at 3535 Bienville Street. That’s a building attached to the Lindy Boggs Medical Center, which of course has not re-opened since Katrina. So that information is obviously over three years old and no longer valid. Thanks, Humana!
