On the same afternoon as the infamous Rogers team phone calls, I called a few other doctors who I found through the Armour website. First one I called is a couple miles away. Score! That would be really convenient if he works out!
So, I call and the first thing I say is: I'm looking for a new doctor who prescribes Armour.
"No, he doesn't."
But I found him listed on the Armour website.
"He doesn't prescribe Armour."
Ok. Next. I call another doctor who's a little farther away. Same script. Ha! Now I'm using scripts! Where do I learn this stuff?
"What insurance do you have?"
I have an HSA.
A health savings account.
I repeat myself. Surely medical staff have heard of HSAs, right?
"What's that mean?"
Cash. I'll be paying cash. (I utilize the KISS strategy, hoping for more success.)
"We're not taking any new patients."
Then why did you need to know what insurance I have?
"Oh I wasn't talking to you. I was talking to the lady at the desk."
