We got our first taste of ObamaCare yesterday. Medicare says mom was using too many refills on her wound pump and refused to allow any additional supplies this week. With no refills for the pump, the home health nurse had to remove the pump and mom started bleeding heavily. The nurse was forced to called an ambulance for the uncontrolled bleeding. Mom spent all day at the hospital and had to have blood transfusions. She has to go back to her surgeon today to have the wound pump put back in. The surgeon says he will attempt to reason with Medicare but is not optimistic. Wonder if Medicare will realize that an ambulance ride, emergency visit, blood transfusions, and visit with a surgeon costs more that simple refills for a wound pump.
Very scary. I don't like the new way of doing things either. It's scary what things are going to come to. Continuing to pray for your mom.
