I’m sure happy that the American Cancer Society has decided to spend its $15 million ad budget telling people there is a healthcare crisis in this country.
It’s about time. I’m one of those lucky people who has insurance. And Blue Cross has decided to deny the $4000 test I had last fall which determined I had invasive breast cancer as “not medically necessary.” I am, of course, fighting it. Meanwhile, I’m being harassed by phone calls from a company called Grant & Weber. They are a collection agency that “specializes in healthcare accounts receivable resolution.” Which means basically terrorizing sick people and threatening them with financial ruin who can’t afford healthcare in George Bush’s America.
