My Kaiser treatment has been phenomenal. From a million dollar plus premie
who received the most incredible care and a positive outcome, to my recent
cervical spine reconstruction surgery (which set me back a whopping $100),
to my pump (of my choice) and CGMS, 1500 test strips every three months
(all at zero co-pay), and my 16 year-old son's life being saved due to
encephalitis (also a $100 copay, for five days in the ICU), you won't hear
I go to PT when I ask for it, get referrals to whatever department I
request, and have had a weekly phone appointment with my CDE for well over
a year. Much of medical care means being our own advocates, and pushing
for what we need and want.
I'm a very happy Kaiser patient (and have been for 25 years).
Happy New Year!
