United Health Care / dropping all but one orthopaedic surgeon in my city

1 Murfreesboro, TN, United States Review updated:

I fell in Feb. and broke both bones in my lower left leg. Had to have surgery and titanium rod placed in my tibia. I am still under the care of the orthopaedic surgeon and doing physical therapy twice a week.

I recently got a letter that said UHC is dropping the group of orthopaedic doctors my doctor is in, leaving one surgeon in the whole town. Oh, but that's OK - there are at least 24 other doctors within 25-30 miles of where I live. They just don't happen to be the one that did my surgery or the follow-up care. I've called UHC to get an extension so I don't have to change doctors. getting anything out of them is impossible and trying to find out how to file a complaint is even harder. I'm at the end of my rope trying to figure this out.

    You haven't seen anything yet. Wait until the death panels refuse you treatment because of your age. Keep supporting Obama and you won't qualify for any health care unless it is free in the Mall.
