    I got a bill from my doctor for $110 because my insurance company didn't pay it. When i call the insurance company and ask why they say the doctor is not in their network of providers. Oh really, BECAUSE I PICKED THE DOCTOR FROM THE LIST YOU GAVE ME, ITS NOT LIKE I JUST PULLED HER NAME OUT OF MY ASS. 3 customer service reps later and explaining that I'm reading the name off of their f***ing website they say "oh yeah, there it is. You're right." so thats how i spent the morning on my day off. Thanks a**holes!

          My gripe: The United States is a REPUBLIC, not a DEMOCRACY, DAMMIT! People can't seem to get that right.

          Agreed. Why people think Democracy would be a good form of government is beyond me. I also do not understand why people seem to think that "Democracy" would work everywhere. When was the last time that Egypt was a real democracy? Libya?

          Agreed again.

            My gripe of the day would be not getting some last night or err this morning. I really should have done that when he was offering at 12:30 AM.

I've just spent FOUR hours this morning filling out claim forms... which my insurance company will go out of their way to find the smallest reason to deny. JUST REIMBURSE ME ALREADY! I'm exhausted, and my brain is like a marshmallow right now. Who can I marry in Canada and be rid of this joke of a U.S. for-profit insurance system?

              thank you
              Totally agree. i spent the better part of the morning filling out claims for "out of network" insurance bills and reimbursement form my flexible spending account. They make it difficult so you don't go after YOUR money. They are all scum bags. I hate them!

                  My gripe - the worthless dumb asses who hosted the Oscars last night. Nice job Academy on trying to appeal to a "younger demographic". They were both a couple of empty suits and dresses. The Academy had their head up their corn holes....wait don't eat corn...bacon holes then!

                    ME EITHER!!! The new rule this year that you can't get reimbursement for over-the-counter medication is total B.S.!!!

                      I thought Anne Hathaway did an alright job. James Franco left a lot to be desired however. Havent' been anyone good hosting it since Billy Crystal.

                          I would rather go without insurance then deal with an HSA or FSA again.

                            I'm having to run our household by myself while going to grad school, AND not freaking getting laid because the navy decided that my husband, who is on FREAKING SHORE DUTY, after just spending 1 year of the last two on deployments should be picked for an Independent Assignment and sent to the East Coast for 7 months .... EVEN THOUGH THERE WAS A GUY WHO WAS QUALIFIED WHO WANTED TO GO AND HAD ASKED TO GO FIRST.

                            Yes I'm bitter about it... I'll get over it, eventually.

                              One of the scary things is that we're not even saving money. The US government already spends more per capita on health care than most other nations that have national health. That is aside from what we are paying as consumers and employers. It's a big giveaway to the insurance companies. They have all the younger people paying into the private system and when we reach our most expensive years, then we become the state's problem. Plus big pharma likes it since they don't have to deal with an 800 lb gorilla negotiating drugs pricing the way they do in other countries. We pay so much more for the same medications than our neighbors to the north and south. I know many people fear the government running health insurance, but I'd frankly rather have my life in their hands than a company with a profit motive and a fiduciary responsibility to their shareholders to provide me with as little care as they can possibly get away with.

                                If I'm only allowed one gripe per day then last Friday maxed me out for the next 7 years.
