Where’s our health care when you need it?
I have been trying to get help from anyone in health care of government. No such luck.
I am in desperate need of oral, facial surgery. This is not cosmetic. I need to have bone removed from one part of my body and transferred to my bottom gums.
The bone in my bottom gums is crumbling. That means I need eight implants and new dentures. The cost is $20,000.
MCP and my private insurance don’t cover dental. They told me that if I was on social assistance, it would be paid for.
I have lost over 20 lbs., due to not being able to chew. I can eat bananas, yogurt, ice cream. I am anemic and diabetic, Type 2.
This is a very stressful situation and I don’t know who to turn to for help.
I worked for 40 years, but where did it get me — two back surgeries and open-heart surgery. Depressing.
Thank you for letting me vent to our medical care system and the government.
