Finally received my insurance last week, the insurance that I applied for in March, last week, at the end of July. That was almost 4 months after
April 1st when the insurance was supposed to kick in according to the California Care site.
I have some serious medical conditions: Addisons Disease, Lupus, tricuspid regurgitation, avascular necrosis and Scleroderma. These conditions need to
me monitored closely by a specialists: endocrinology, rheumatology, orthopedic and dermatologists.
Well yesterday I got the good news, no specialists in my area are taking new patients. Meaning all my serious medical conditions will go untreated.
How is this possible? I feel like I've been handed a death sentence. California Care gave me no other option other than PHC (low income medi-cal.)
For the last few moths I have been feeling terrible, since I was not getting treatment because the insurance didn't kick in until just last week. Now
I have insurance but nowhere to use it, no doctors to treat me other than primary care physicians.
I am sick and have been sick for months, who is going to treat me? Nobody! Awesome!
Addison's Disease without treatment is a death sentence. Thank you US Government for giving me no choice on insurance plans, other than medi-cal. In
about 2 months after not taking medication for Addison's disease, it's death.
