Unintended Consequences

 Not the usual result of rising healthcare costs. I'm now forced to stop seeing two of the three doctors who've taken care of my treatment. The people who took care of my radiation and chemo treatments are no longer accepting United Healthcare, which is what my Access insurance is, and who have raised their rates enough that Ironwood dropped them. I had two appointments scheduled for just after the final cutoff date.

So now I have to find another Radiation Oncologist to replace Dr. Woo and another Chemotherapy Oncologist to replace Dr Szewczyk. Which pretty much sucks, though if I try to look at some sort of bright side, I guess it'll be like I'm getting a second opinion... no. It sucks.
