Dear Tricare

Dear Tricare,

Thanks for the run around, when someone is experiencing, numbness, tingling, fatigue, dizziness and any other number of symptoms, I'm sure protocol is to give them more red tape than they thought imaginable. I really appreciate not being able to see someone until november, and not being able to get the tests that I need without having everyone and their mom approve it. What's better, is that I live an hour from every single doctor you have referred me to, and gas is getting pretty expensive, wouldn't it be cheaper for you to approve a one day free for all, so I can get some answers and you can quit having to file all that paperwork? I'm just guessing here, but I'm sure the thinking behind all this is that it will weed out the people who don't really need treatment, But once a person proves that they are willing to go through all this, can't you offer some way to make it easier on the sick person? No? Okay then, I guess we will keep dancing this tango until I get some answers.


  1. Ahh, I remember those days of Army hospitals when I was growing up... free but far from high-quality.

  2. Hmmm, and the government people wonder why the rest of us don't want them running healthcare.

    Hope you get some answers sooner rather than later.

    I'd love to have you drop by my place: Life Makes Me Laugh

  3. Yeah, if it was up to me no one would have to deal with government run healthcare. They tell me who I can see, and how many times I'm allowed to see them. I have to get pre-approval for EVERYTHING.
