Phone Call

Yesterday while I was blog hopping I got a phone call. It was from Organizing America. I think that’s who it is anyway. I had signed a petition for healthcare and I wrote a story about the coverage we have and don’t have. I am really upset how insurance companies dictate what they will and they won’t pay for. Here in our state they don’t cover Autism or any kind of Developmental Delays. So you have to have therapists that work around the certain coding to just get it covered. It’s rather frustrating. I know our state is one of them that are going to try to mandate the insurance companies to pay for Autism. It would be a great load off the Federal Government and the County. Dakota is on a Child Waiver that pays for the services that he receives for Autism. Which I am very thankful for.

Well back to the phone call. I was asked for permission to publish what I wrote. I gave the permission and told them to add a little comment that the cost of our insurance went up again this year by 17%. Does that really benefit me?? No because the coverage just gets lousier and the Insurance company just gets richer. GRRRRR  I don’t know exactly where it’s going to get published. I will ask when they call me back later today.

I was also asked to take part in National Health Care Day on June 27th. I was a little paniced as it’s next Saturday. I don’t know if I can throw this together fast enough to get the word out. I am certainly going to try. I reserved the meeting room in the library next Saturday for an hour and a half. I know the Autism Society in the next county will hopefully send me some phamplets to hand out. I have to make some flyers and check with the local papers to see if I can get the news out. I think I missed the deadlines as they called me to late. I have talked with a couple neighbors and they said they will come and one has Autism in his family so he is going try to get his family to come. I hope there is at least a small turn out if anything. At least for next year I have time to plan this. I guess I never told you that I am doing my share on Autism Awareness but from what I am writing I am sure you could tell that.

I hope I can pull this off with short notice. They are calling back today to see the progress. YIKES!! I don’t feel like I progressed that much…. Oh well it will be busy for me next week organizing my thoughts and stuff. Wish I had a projector to hook to my computer to show a couple power points. I will think of something.

Have a great weekend.

    You can do it!! Plus I think that is so awesome you are doing this! Insurance sucks especially because they cover what they want to cover while the rest of us walk around sick and poor. I could go on all day about insurance companies and hospitals…..somedays I wish I lived in France with socialized healthcare.
