WAHPF told me that they would have their decision on my coverage by Thursday (3/13). They didn't send me anything, so Friday I called in and waited on hold forever and when I finally talked to a person... they told me it could be weeks. I mentioned that I was told this would be handled by yesterday and then they said they saw it was marked urgent, but would still not realistically be dealt with for weeks.
Meantime, I got a very large hospital bill hanging over my head and no coverage for future appointments and the meds they tell me that I need.
Once I get a decision from them, I will post it here so that future readers will have full disclosure.
(read the following in the voice of Ron Swanson off Parks and Recreation)
For the most part, I think we are all adults here and realize that this country is full of people with diverse backgrounds and opinions. I am not in the least offended by someone stating an opinion opposite of mine. Our country has always been the great experiment. I vote, and so I feel I should be allowed to complain. I realize others vote against things that I have voted for, while frustrating at times, this is just part of our system.
Please don't confuse patriotism with love of government. I love my country, but I want my government to serve the people, not the other way around. I also think our government should be much smaller, more efficient, and less meddlesome.
I think the list of rules the government has for its citizens should pretty much be as short as the list of rules we gave them to found our government, the rest are blatant forms of tyranny and oppression. A true democracy is nothing but mob rule, a republic acknowledges that certain rights of the people cannot be infringed by the rule of the majority. Otherwise, our system is nothing more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner.
Queue the National Anthem and let's keep one eye on Old Glory while the other glares with contempt at anyone who doesn't remove their hat and cover their heart. Goodnight my fellow Americans and God Bless America!
