"We have determined that the treatment is medically necessary and is eligible for coverage."
Another insurance company wielding its power over a voiceless and faceless patient. I am held captive by a for-profit insurance company who I voluntarily submit myself to -- a board of unknown and anonymous authority that I allow to make decisions about my health care and well-being. A supremacy who I actually PAY to exert their will on me -- and the medical experts who know and care for me -- a human soul. A real person.
It's a racket, I tell you. A racket.
But if I am so paralyzingly dismayed at the gall of my insurance company, why did their determination of acceptance make my heart leap for joy?
That, my friends, is a paradox. Both absolutely absurd and absolutely true.,
