This past weekend, I bought a washer and dryer - and, of course - I pulled my back out unloading the truck. This kind of thing happens to me when
I'm lifting awkward shaped or sized objects. I see my chiropractor at least twice a year for this kind of thing.
When I arrived at her office, the receptionist was there - but no chiropractor. The strange thing is that the receptionist (daughter of the owner)
explained that she's on unemployment because the chiropractor was not willing to accept even more paperwork related to the ACA and that she didn't
like the new pricing structure that she was required to adopt. That's right, she quit! The receptionist and her father (the owner of the business)
were scrambling to find another Doctor to fill the position.
So, being in a bad sort of way - my wife found another chiropractic clinic (30 minutes away) and set an appointment.
I was then introduced to the new level of paperwork, and the fee structure. 25 pages of forms, intensely personal information (SSN, what are your
hobbies, did your wife have a c-section, etc). The fees - oh my goodness. What was previously a $40 adjustment - turned into $150 before prescribed
therapies to "manage my condition".
I managed my condition right out of there and will spend some quality time in my gravity boots over the next couple of nights.
What I wonder is if this is going to become the norm.
