Doc’s Office Spends Hours On Hold for Patient’s Surgery Authorization


Another ObamaCare Success Story: Doctor’s Office Spends Hours On Hold With Health Insurer for Patient’s Surgery Authorization

We figure people will start dying pretty soon thanks to ObamaCare, and it apparently will happen pretty quickly the way things are going.


Paperwork problems almost delayed suburban Chicago resident Sheri Zajcew’s scheduled surgery Thursday, but Dr. John Venetos decided to operate without a routine go-ahead from the insurance company. That was after Venetos’ office manager spent two hours on hold with the insurer Thursday, trying to get an answer about whether the patient needed prior authorization for the surgery. The office manager finally gave up.

  1. I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease a week before Christmas. My doctor’s office was scheduling a referral appointment with a specialist. It’s been three weeks and I haven’t heard boo about this appointment. Not one word.

    Now, I’m self-pay (I know! Call the police!! I don’t have insurance!!!! Kick me out of the country!!!).

    I can’t imagine what it would be like for people who have seventy-two middle-men plus the entire Federal Government in the way of their doctor.

  2. I took one of my clients to the emergency room pain being old and having congestive heart failure I take her to the ER quite often. usually we wait about 15 to 30 minutes, this time we sat in the waiting room and waited and waited and waited. Eventually been up to the desk and ask what was going on. As there was nobody in the lobby no one in the hospital waiting except for us. I was told and new guidelines mandate at 6 to 8 hour wait.

  3. start dying pretty soon .. quickly

    OH NO! They are NOT going to take credit for the ONE AND ONLY Republican plan. Over my DEAD body!

  4. I wonder if it would help to be a big obama donor.

    Oh, wait, it would because his biggest donors are exempt. Never mind. Answered my own question there.

  5. Mo, that is unbelievable. How is that rule possible? That is simply to make people not come. How many will we lose with that type of behavior?

  6. The demunists overpromised with their Ponzi schemes decades ago and ObamaDontCare will be a convenient way to make those entitlement payments go away.

  7. As I said the other day (although I forgot to sign in, and did it anonymously… D’OHHH…);

    “ObamaKare IS the death panel!” 😳
