A large healthcare insurer in Kansas started taking payments for healthcare January 1st. The only problem is that healthcare benefit cards won’t be available until late January. The insurer is asking that one talk with one’s doctor about not filing any claims until the insured has a card. It is possible that one will be charged for the services and later reimbursed. I think the company has taken a page out of the old segregationist plan that was summarized with the old saying “Justice delayed, is justice denied”. I think most people like me will put off care until after the card is received – and I think that was the intentioned plan by the company.
Are healthcare recipients becoming the chattel of the 21st century?
