Can I just say how glad I am to have insurance? Because I am. I know I am blessed to have it. With that said I would like to recommend that the money that my insurance company will pay to the doctor I saw 2 days ago, instead be given to ME. Why, might you ask...? I'll tell you:
A couple of weeks ago I noticed a bump on my left forearm just right before where my hand is connected to my forearm. I didn't know what it was, so, me being the weirdo I am decided I would see if it was a pimple and try to squeeze and pop it. Nope. Not that. So then I decided to see if it would rip off if I tugged on it. Blame this on the fact that deep down I am actually still 9 years old. Duh. Still didn't work. So I called my best friend of over 20+ years to come over during nap time so I could go to the doctor to see if THEY could remove it or at least tell me what it is. I honestly thought it was a skin tag or something. Turns out... it's a WART.
No big deal. So I ask the nice doctor if they can remove it. She tells me: No. We don't have to cryogenic stuff to do it here. But you can buy it over the counter at most pharmacies. *say whaaaaaat?* So not only is my insurance going to pay her for my "medical exam" but I have to fork out money to get rid of this thing myself? I almost asked if I could borrow a scalpel. But, alas, I did not. Instead I hightailed it right to the closest store and bought a DIY freeze-you-wart thing AND in case that didn't work I also got a liquid application to put on. It's totally not a big deal. Like at all. But I honestly think that instead of the insurance company paying Dr. Get-out-of-doing-my-job-because-we-don't-conveniently-have-the-right-tools, to do NOTHING that I should get whatever amount of money that they send to her for her "diagnosis". Seriously people. When I checked out I didn't even get any papers or ANYTHING.
So here I sit typing this staring at the ugly almost-hopefullydeaderthanitwas-wart that is left wondering why I am enduring the stupid task of wart removal.
