Healthcare is a mess, as everyone can probably attest.
What’s frustrating me today is that I have a simple question for my doctor, but I can’t talk to him or ask him anything without making an appointment, waiting to fit into his schedule, and paying $$. It’s a simple yes or no question about prescriptions he made.
There’s got to be a better way to handle this.
Yeah. For starters, get a better doctor. That's terrible.
Mine has an assistant to handle patient requests like this. You just leave her a message. Sometimes they don't get back to me until the next day, especially if I call after 2 and it isn't an emergency, but at least there's a mechanism.
That will be a housing market crash so hard... I wonder how much money the fed will print to keep the banks "in business."
Today, I started looking into the establishing my HELOC (home equity line of credit). I closed my last one after my divorce, and just hadn't gotten around to reopening it.
I expected a quick 20 minute phone call to start the process. Nope. I was surprised how hard it is now. All the big banks here refuse to take an application.
The little credit union that gave me my last one won't lend in AZ now.
Another credit union I did a mortgage with now want $700 to establish one. PLUS the appraisal cost.
To put it in perspective, they didn't stop giving HELOCs when Lehman Bros and Wamu and Merrill Lynch went under.
Clearly the banks are expecting it big time. And Janet Yellen will be in treasury.
Brace. For. Impact.
