What would you say is your worst experience with health care? I thankfully haven’t had much health problems in recent years, but I do often worry about my health and whether or not I can even afford to go to the hospital when I get sick. I’m currently covered, but for how long, I don’t know.
The only issues I ever had, was with getting medication I really needed. I have asthma, and for some reason, some things aren’t covered, so I often get stuck with a huge bill. Other than that, I’ve mostly been lucky, but I’m sure you all have some horror stories to share yourself.
I have had issues with getting tests done. I would request specific tests and I would have to jump through hoops or go through 2 or 3 doctors before they would give me the tests. One was when I wanted to get my D3 levels checked. This was 10 years ago and I heard they are more willing to test in office for this now. Another was when I wanted my hormone levels checked. This was a few years ago. It took me 4 appointments, 3 doctors, and almost 5 months before I got the test and the results.
