I have a pretty decent insurance plan. In fact this is one of the best plans I've been on.

Despite this I cannot find an orthopedic doctor that accepts my insurance!!!

I've made countless phone calls all telling me that the Doctor doesn't participate in my plan.


I finally one doctor, who I've seen before, that accepts. The only problem?

His earliest appointment is in a month!

I'm in too much pain to wait that long.

I keep hitting all these dead ends and I just don't know what to do.

To make matters worse every time I think about what could be wrong with me I start tearing up!!

I'm just maxed out on stress.

I need a new game plan and I just don't know what that is.

Work with your insurance company. If you can't get proper treatment from a doctor in the plan, they will normally let you see someone outside the plan with the same coverage. Or push with the that doctor and say it is an emergency and you can't wait a month.

With insurance and doctors you have be assertive and be your own advocate. If you don't feel like you can do it becuase you are upset, have your mom or a friend call for you.

Keep calling everyday and ask for any cancellations, and hopefully something will come up sooner.

Ugh, new doctors can be such a pain, and I'm trying to find just a GP.
