We were short of Sufenta today. One of our Neuro guys wanted to use it for a neuromonitored patient so as not to dampen the EEG trace during surgery but was told, “It’s too costly.”
When you start rationing and cost containment shortages happen.
It will only get worse...
My husband needs an MRI to diagnose a painful back problem. General practitioner says if he orders it they will probably deny . cost is about $1500 so only ‘specialists ‘ can order and ‘probably’ get it through. First appt available there is April 4. Long time to be in pain with something that can be remidied once we can SEE it.
Tomorrow I will call and see if anyone will do MTI asap if we pay cash, which we are fortunate enough to be able to do.. For anyone who doesn’t think Obama care is up and running. think again.
