Dear World,

Yes, I had a brain tumor over 27 years ago. Someone obviously still wants me here, so here I am. Sorry to mess up your plans. I'm still disabled, too. Imagine that. Sorry I'm still walking, not the happy little potato you wish I was. Suck it up. Yes, I know I was supposed to be "cured." I shouldn't still need physical therapy, should I? Thanks ever so much for making it unavailable to me. I'm sorry the insurance I have it wouldn't cover it since my tumor was not last year & the pittance you give me has not made me independently wealthy enough to pay for it.

No love,
Me

I'd write this to the White House. The new policies should be holding insurance companies accountable for crap like this.

They should be. Why aren't they?

I am greatly enjoying the mental image of what might happen if I sent this to the Whitehouse without rewording it at all.

Obama seems like he'd really understand the frustration, get the sarcasm-as-crutch-for-dealing-with-pain -- his admin probably wouldn't pick up on it. They see "legal speak" that is all.

Especially since he was there watching his mom fight with her health insurance company while she was dealing with cancer.

And Obama does have ten letters from "everyday Americans" sent to his desk to read first thing in the morning...he might even see a letter if the OP sends it.

IDK. I would think Oregon would be all over the new healthcare plan. Liberalist state in the country, so I've heard.

Now I have mental image of Obama going:
Oregon, I am disappoint.

Amusing image, isn't it?

They would pretend that they would cover it, until after you went to the therapist. Then they'd demand more paperwork from the therapist, hem & haw for a month or two, then send you a bill for hundreds they know you don't have
