    I've been to many doctors over the past 4 months, and not one cares for my well-being or cares in general. I made an appointment with a urologist office and I specifically asked if they take my insurance and they said yes. When I get there today they call me up and tell me they don't take my insurance and ask me to leave. My PCP is up the street, so I went there and asked why the fuck they'd give me a referral for an office that doesn't take my insurance. They said I need to take that kind of thing up with the insurance company. I am constantly fighting like this, with insurances, the marketplace, fighting for my right to be cared for, but none of them care. I hate this country.

    I'm so sorry you had to deal with that, you didn't need that!
    Sometimes the healthcare system can be messed up! And I'm sorry you got caught in it!

    I hate the health care system. I keep getting referred to person after person after person. Its exhausting and so emotionally draining. I guess you just have to try your best to detach what goes on with doctors and how you feel. I suppose you're on a train track and you're slowly chugging away, doctors are there to go on the parallel tracks and help tow you along every now and then. I personally don't like the idea of relying on them too much. But maybe thats because I have trust issues.

    Bureaucracy is a crap thin to deal with...

    The doctor's I am sure care... unfortunately the people on the business side of things can't always come to deals.

    Still... while it sucks to keep fighting... you are worth it. It is hard to advocate for oneself, especially when one doesn't feel good about themselves... but think of how your loved ones see you, the people you do good for... and fight for the person they see.

    Your insurance company will find/make a ref feral for you, and if they do not have a specialist in your area they will have to do single use agreement to cover for whatever specialist you need. Unfortunately, the DR office cannot know the details of every insurance company and what drs will take what plan, but every insurance company has an 9800 number on your card to call and talk to. Every one I have ever seen will also have a list online if you prefer online and look it up yourself because are uncomfortable talking or taking their word for it. While insurance can be a pain, I much prefer it to the places where getting to see a specialist at all takes a vote in parliament followed by months long wait- so it is really just a mater of which inconvenience you have to deal with. When no feeling well it is hard to find energy time to worry about bureaucracy though. I hope if you call they are able to help you.
