I am not going to post this on FB today cause I feel that this is more like a 'journal' today.
Well, I cried a bucket of tears this morning after I was told by my insurance company - and ex-employer [Kaiser Permanente] that my COBRA induction does not guarantee continuous coverage. After fighting with them for most of March and April, my COBRA statement eventually became available online about 2 weeks ago, I made the payment through my bank the next day and it took COBRA and Kaiser through yesterday morning for the payment to be acknowledged. Kaiser now informed me that this was for April and they only activate the policy on a month to month basis since this is how COBRA bills.
Now I am ready to post my May payment to COBRA, but wait: if this takes a couple of weeks, I will not have insurance until towards the end of May! Kaiser is profiting from me [!!] since they will not see me as a patient at all if I am inactive!
WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS!!! Lawyer - here I come...... I really have no other options, do I? There is no law prohibiting them from doing this but they did break some kind of ethical code by misdiagnosis in the first damn place, didn't they?
