It seems the doc-blockage never stops. A particular thorn in my side has been Care Core. They manage imaging services for an insurance that we accept and often deny coverage for CT scans. Once the requested test is denied, the physician may appeal by calling a 1-800 number, and much of the time, they end up approving the requested study. So my question is, why make the physician jump through hoops just to get the study done, when ultimately you are going to approve the test if a physician calls? Then again, maybe that’s the point, not every physician will have time in their day to call and appeal, and many of tests will not get done.

Sometimes a doc just wants to get away from it all, ya know go back to their hometown and let the grandparents get some grandkiddy time. Unfortunately the docblockage followed me to the airport, where Delta airlines cancelled our flight, then got us to an adjacent city sans luggage and car seats. . . at 1 am. Luckily we now are now in possession of our prized possessions 2 days later. . .though I was starting to get used to wearing my dad’s 1970’s leisure wear.
