Lies: Good and Bad!
Before the first radiation treatment Bonnie and I understood there was to be a "planning session."
This a session where they take X-Rays, and find the exact positions of the heart, spine, other organs, and the cancer mass. The idea here is that they want to "aim" the radiation at about five centimeters above and five all around, actually, the cancer -- that way they can be sure they "get it all."
So, that planning schedule was set for this one day -- and Bonnie went in for that.
As I was waiting for her to be finished, I naturally asked about when the first treatment would be. There had also been some "murmuring" about insurance coverage.
Let me state as a bald fact, based on some very intimate and personal observation of the "cancer system" and the "insurance system" for these several months, that the HMOs MUST find ways to ration care -- or they would go bankrupt.
Yet, there are laws that make them liable for private lawsuit if a patient is "improperly denied" medical treatment.
So, there is a "grand conspiracy" (which none of the participants would ever be willing to consider a "conspiracy") where:
Now, let me describe the other end of this spectrum.
When Bonnie was first being diagnosed with cancer, those who knew what to expect (not told to us) realized that she would need a "feeding tube" and that there would come a time when she could not even swallow her own saliva.
Part of the "service" that seemed so "compassionate" was the hospital nutritionist who "prescribed" a "medically approved feeding formula" that would be covered by the insurance.
In due course we got more than 100 cans of this -- Ensure Plus HN, which, I suspect, you cannot buy in any store. They also delivered the feeding tube equipment described in the link just above.
Bonnie "tolerated" the feeding tube and formula OK, but was having reactions (probably caused by other dumb things I was doing.)
She wanted to change formulas -- I found a brand at Walgreens -- it worked fine. It cost a bit less than $1 per can of 350 calories.
It worked fine in the feeding bag, and the feeding "pump" worked fine also -- there was no apparent difference between the consistency of the Walgreen's product and the "medically approved formula."
Now I'm going to be "careful!" I am about to describe what "might be" because the "truth might get me in trouble!"
The nutritionist sympathized with us, that the Ensure Plus, HN, was "not working" and agreed to get insurance coverage for something like the Walgreen's brand.
She FAXed the request to the Primary Care Physician, but did not know what brand of "medically approved" stuff would be like the drug store brand. She didn't designate any specific formula.
The primary care physician couldn't make that choice, so he did nothing to process the insurance request.
I happened then to be talking to the "home health nurse" who had delivered the prior supply of the "medically approved" formula.
She could not deliver any new formula without insurance approval.
She said, "If you are using the feeding tube pump and equipment for a non-approved formula, we will have to come out and pick up the equipment -- it is not allowed to use that equipment except with a prescribed formula! "
I "assured her" that I was ONLY using the Ensure Plus, HN, in the feeding bag and equipment.
Without that bag and pump there would have been no way I could conceive of for this feeding to take place.
So, should I tell the home health nurse to come pick up the pump?
I leave that to your imagination.
You have to work within an immoral system, and that doesn't make it very easy to "Seek to live with the truth!" which is one of the moral principles I try to live by.
What would you do?
