1. It’s hard for everyone in America.
childfromthesun explains, “I used to work for a health insurance company, and it was absolutely painful. Sometimes even we didn’t understand the decisions our company made. I could only do it for a few months. I had to help a poor lady who, post-heart surgery, was promised over the phone it was covered. Then the company suddenly backtracked after the fact and asked her to cough up 60K. My boss threatened me not to tell her how to dispute. Absolutely HORRIFIC! Dealing with crying dying cancer patients on the phone just trying to offset costs for their surviving relatives and poor elderly being taken advantage of broke my heart.”
“Listening to distressed patients in pain wondering why their life-saving med prices jumped from $50/m to $5000/m NO EXAGGERATION! And the cold and calculated cruelty of the company I worked for astounded me. I couldn’t believe this was an everyday reality for sick people. My husband was about to move to America to live with me! Then, I realized we were making a mistake. I stopped him from boarding the plane because I know this would be our future when we grew elderly. I knew in my soul I had to get the hell out of this place.”
