Kaiser Permanente Informative - Kaiser Permanente IS way beyond terrible AND inhumane !
If I were Well enough I'd leave, Maybe go to a country where they care MORE for the patient than the DOLLARS they save. Kaiser is awful...Period.
I have a disease called Dystonia. Kaiser knows I've went from a ladies petite size 14-16 TO a size O in like 7 months. No appetite, that fluid BURNS too INSIDE. Kaiser knows I'm dying too. They call ME once a week, EVERY week, just to check in. Why ? I'm not sure. They can't help AND won't, but they'll plague you by phone for NO reason.
Nancy, my case "pacifier", blamed everything on the docs. Does Kaiser MAKE their employees STOOP that LOW ? With-Hold CARE and TELL you WHY you cannot GET any help...know why ??? Well..there never was HELP, only EXCUSES, bottom line IS money, money, money.
The doc in Denver did an ILLEGAL "Huntingtons Chorea" test WITHOUT my signature too !!!! NANCY said it was OK. Sign AFTER the test, yea right. They, being Kaiser, bugged me so much about signing the paper AFTER that test.
Their nit wit in Denver called Himself and said Neg. on that. NANCY on behalf of Kaiser ASSURED me there'd NEVER be the Mayo Clinic. NOT one of their "flunky" doctors could EVER do the Mayo referral ?
I now consider those calls "Harassment". BECAUSE months go by and no one gets IT at Kaiser OR they really DO NOT CARE.
The Mayo Clinic was brought up by 3 or more Dr's BUT not a one filled out the Correct FORMS, and Kaiser is SO HAPPY.
I look like a walking skeleton ! I mean, come on, this IS heart-less. My belly button leaks clear fluid that gives me second degree burns! THAT surgeon that DID this doesn't care. He laughed ! YOU Kaiser should have fired the doc.
Kaiser assigned a "Case Mgr." for me. That was infuriating. All she did was run me and my husband around in circles and spout LIES. Doctors won't and don't treat you IF you have Kaiser. I'd bet they get 'kick-backs' for NOT taking tests and labwork. They are blatantly letting me die.
The case mgr. TOLD me the Mayo would NEVER occur.
Nancy here in Co. Spgs. would tell me numerous times that SHE was faxing OR mailing TESTs & the RESULTS to various doctors. THAT never ever occurred. She DOESN'T have access !
IF Kaiser sends you out of town to another city , then that is called "Out-of-Network.
Meaning "out-of city", Or out of FRANCHISE area. Kaiser IS franchised OUT.
So, the owner of Kaiser Permanente saved a lot of dollars Not footing the bill for the Mayo. It means my life so I hope the OWNER here in the Springs in Colorado IS VERY HAPPY.
Your little FRANCHISE in the RED or what?
My life is nearly gone. I didn't know if I'd have the strength to type 1/10 of this tale nor if this makes sense to the reader. I hope I got my message through.
Four kinds of Dystonia, three of which are Brand New plus an Open navel that LEAKS from a surgery done around 10 yrs. ago. The surgeon hates me because I didn't sue my M.D.
'Kaiser Permanente', you ARE THE joke of the health care industry.
'Kaiser is Franchised too.
