Today, I called a doctor's office for a referral. I was in public, so when she asked me what type of issue I had, I mumbled that I had a vaginal issue. After painstakingly having to repeat this several times, she said she was asking what kind of insurance I have. FML

For some reason I believe you need to go back to school and learn to read. The doctors office was asking her what kind of insurance she had, and she misheard them.

True, she'll never see them again, so she doesn't need to be too worried, but some phone calls you should just wait to make in private—or at least find a quiet corner or something. The other day at the grocery store I heard some lady arguing with her sibling about whether to take their father off of life support. Maybe it's just that I value my privacy (or I'm a cranky old lady), but there should be boundaries.

Should have grabbed the phone and yelled 'Pull the damned plug!!' and hung up. Might not be socially acceptable but if they're making a private family matter public, then you get an opinion, also.

Please don't say that, ever.

There's so many insurances out there, that we cannot possibly know which one you have. Each insurance has a plan, each plan has a BIN, PCN, GROUP number.

And we have to figure it out, which takes time, that people don't have, that we don't have because we have other shit to do.

My dad's insurance is confusing. There's a master insurance company or whatever that contracts through other medical insurance agencies. My dental insurance is through the main insurance thingy but it's different than my other medical insurance, which is medical mutual or whatever. I always use the umbrella company name, but apparently that's not right. Idk lol

That is a lame excuse if I ever heard one, instead of keep making those, why don't you spend some time come up with ways to make it happen?
You say you have no time and yet you are on FML, presumably other social media as well, you make way, and you become a winner.

So, he should use his free time off of work to someone how magically come up with the name and type of insurance some dimwitted (sorry, above, and yes, it is very confusing) potential patient has? Get the insurance card out and read it. You should always carry it on you, in case of an emergency, anyways. That's why they make them credit card sized and usually of hard plastic. You can also request extras for family that are covered.
