Massachusetts now requires health insurance. If this is not unconstitutional it should be. People without insurance of course don’t do their patriotic fair share in supporting the big pharma industry. All this is going to mean though is a rapid downslide of an ever increasing list of not covered “procedures”.
It’s “open enrollment” time at work. In the past representatives of the prospective health insurers would come to the workplace to explain their benefits. This year it’s down to a read the intranet page and then click on the black hole of computing benefit selctions page. We are down to Guido’s health care.
This year I found the company benefit selection page most profane and offensive. They tout your “opportunity” to set up an account, which you have no control over, in order to pay for medical expenses.
The second part goes on to extoll the virtues of preventive medicine and actually states “only 1/3 went to the doctors for annual checkups”.
Yes, I did save the pdf file. Let me illustrate the point here clearly. The company said only 1/3 of you went to the doctor for an annual checkup.
In general with every word in this health brochure I can envision the focus group of evil HR minions agonizing over each and every word trying to make a turd look like a silver spoon.
Oh, I see, that must mean this is total bullshit right?
Privacy of medical records? I didn’t authorized the company to ask my doctor if I went last year. The marriage of the most Satanic memes in business are now going to be coupled to and reinforced through government.
You will buy our crappy insurance, take our unproven drugs and if you go blind as a side effect tough shit.
Now when I get fired for being a Deek, I’ll post the entire pdf and more here.
How’s your health “insurance”, watch as in time it’s going to wither away into corporate nothingness, kind of like dealing with the IRS or your cell phone “plan”.
