  •  Aaaah...The Adult Sibling Thread (7+ / 0-)

    I don't think there is a subject on the planet that is more fraught for me.

    "Close" just isn't the right word at all: how deeply entwined into my emotional psyche are my adult siblings and how many different emotional registers can they trigger, still?

    These are the central relationships in my life, even when they are complete failures, that much is clear.

    Sorry to drop in so late, was busy giving trainings all day to public health workers on how to write plain language documents.

    (there's a joke, hmmm?  Me, coaching people about writing???)

      ...hummm, that definitely doesn't work anymore for us regarding health insurance claim forms...hummm.

      They want a claim number and a social security number...then they kick it back and want the social security number...no matter how many times we fill out a new form with...the friggin' social security number they kick it back because they want the social security number.

      Now this crap was already played by the insurers...BUT never before. I really think is has to do with ACA coming on board. These guys (the for profit insurance companies) are pissed and simply devising new ways of not paying.

      Well, that will surely work for them...the patients get care...but the care givers don't get paid (that will keep their profits up...the patients taken cared for...and docs and the like...well)...

      Ignorance is bliss only for the ignorant. The rest of us must suffer the consequences.
