Woman Faints Waiting For Medical Insurance – Palm Beach County – Healthcare District
Healthcare Hell In America costing lives
The following is a story, about dangerous’Healthcare’ debacle’s in America concerning hospitals where I personally received treatment from on 13 separate occasions undergoing 6 surgeries, and ironically still currently going through constant life-threatening medical issues pre and post hysterectomy and other medical concerns where I could of lost my life at any given moment!
While all healthcare agencies, organizations, hospitals, politicians, doctors, and many healthcare leaders and decision makers sat around, and did nothing to acknowledge any of my life-threatening severe medical issue’s.
Attacks against U.S. women is currently occurring and no political figure, corporation or top 1% cares if “Women” live or die in America, so please be careful on who you vote for it may be the difference between your “life or death.
World pharmaceutical greed, corruption, and Healthcare political bureaucracy, has millions of Floridians and many U.S. citizens currently uninsured, requiring medical attention! My story proves they don’t care about your health!
It’s not rocket science people “Come On” if people aren’t receiving proper healthcare, this could be very well construed as direct violations of humanitarian rights, by not receiving proper, safe, medical treatment.
All Americans must ask themselves; Why are there so many problems in the United States healthcare industry? and..Who can citizens really trust with their health, safety and well-being? Why are there still currently thousands of “uninsured citizens” in the “State of Florida,” and elsewhere whom are in desperate need of life-saving medical attention, just as my personal “healthcare hell,” which is ongoing!
Currently I reside in West palm beach, Fl area and I don’t have any healthcare insurance, due to not having a proper residence or mailing address, which ironically was caused by my excessive hospital visits from 2012 up until recently.
As a woman who’s been at the bottom dealing with this “Healthcare Hell” in America, this has been a living nightmare, and trust and believe out of 2 years of fighting the Healthcare system in America, and Florida, no political figure or any other leader cares about a human life, let alone a woman’s life!
I’ve been fighting for immediate Healthcare re-certification to receive healthcare coverage for additional surgery and a needed mammogram. My life is currently at a stand still and in the hands of a faulty re-certification system at the Healthcare District of Palm Beach County! The ordeal left me lethargic passed out on a cement restroom floor with a elevated B.P. of 229/108 and more bodily injuries.
Currently, I’m unable to receive proper medical treatment that’s been ongoing since 2012, due to lack of medical insurance, although previously insured by the Health Care District of Palm Beach County a few months prior!
Several hospitals and ER rooms provided me with minimal treatment due to my lack of insurance, referring me to my primary care doctor and others, along with providing prescriptions for my dangerously high hypertension, after giving a B.P. injection to lower my B.P. while I was in the E.R., then soon after came my discharge papers! Amazingly, no healthcare professional directly addressed the root cause of my medical problems that landed me into the E.R. They gave me a band-aid and brushed me off like my life didn’t matter!
Getting discharged by both doctor and hospital was a slap in the face, when they all knew very well I had no medical insurance for follow up or prescriptions, none of the so-called caring compassionate, nurses, doctors, or hospital staff seemed to care! I thought to myself how can you discharge a “High Risk” re-occurring patient knowing they don’t have access to follow up healthcare, and they could die?
Now get this one my initial healthcare district insurance coverage was first activated February 2013, due to the persistence of my doctors office at the time who phoned the Healthcare District Management office and explained, to them I was there new patient and in need of immediate surgery and I really needed medical coverage for surgery. At that time of course the Healthcare District approved my medical coverage from 2/2013 – 3/2014 under option 1. Unknowingly months later post-surgery, I started having additional medical complications that landed me right back into the hospital in 2014.
Currently I’m still undergoing life-threatening medical problems stemming back from 2012! Due to recent life-threatening medical problems from previous surgeries that went unexplained, and now new cancerous concerns, where I’ve recently visited 3 ER rooms and hospitalized 2 times in the month of 6/2014, recent as 9/30/2014, each visit uninsured!
When I phoned the Healthcare District of f Palm Beach County in 6/2014, after being released from the hospital, they explained to me my coverage was dropped due to my “lack of response” from there office mailing my re-certification information to a previous incorrect address, where I’d been evicted 2 weeks after my 5th major surgery 8/2013, which was the start of my homelessness being uninsured, and after 8 months of hospital visits and 5 surgeries.
Now October 2014, I’m currently experiencing more life-threatening medical problems that need to be immediately addressed. So with no insurance, and being afraid for my life possibly having cancer. In a recent visit the ER doctor at Wellington Regional suggested; if I was hospitalized multiple times in the West Palm Beach area and still having medical problems maybe it was time to go out of the “State” and seek proper medical attention elsewhere! Surprisingly, this was not the first time I was told this, “many organizations stated,” this when I was seeking homelessness help and additional medical help! This doesn’t speak well of Florida!
Relocating as some wished me to do was virtually impossible, due to my extensive ongoing medical trauma’s and multiple surgeries it made no sense to leave and start my medical problems over elsewhere? I hope there is hope in my future, because several South Florida Hospitals and Doctors failed on several occasions to find the cause of my ongoing medical problems which has lasted for a long period of time, basically putting my life on hold. How can a person live their life not knowing, if they may end up in the hospital at any time?
So trying again to re-qualify for somebody’s healthcare insurance, I’ve been fighting to stay healthy and alive, while continually fighting the Government, State, and Local Healthcare agencies for fair and proper healthcare for all human beings! Politicians are supposed to protect the health, safety and well-being of American citizens, which is not being done, American citizens are dying in the hands of “United States Healthcare, Hell Of A Faulty System.”
Palm Beach County Healthcare District Hell
Back to the Palm Beach County Health Care District, in September 2014 after another E.R. discharge, I contacted the Healthcare District and spoke with the customer service department. This is when the agent stated, since my case was already closed, they would re-send me new paperwork to my mailing address to re-apply.
After 2 months the application never arrived, when calling to check the CSR states they have nothing to do with mailing the applications, and it’s best I come in, this was 3 weeks later! Needless to say I was furious! So I went in and I was told since I only had a mailing address and was homeless, I needed to show proof of my homelessness and needed a Homeless Declaration form filled out from a agency proving so, this form was filled out the very same day as per request.
After visit two and turning in all paperwork, a few days later I called the Healthcare district to check the status of my application, which I thought would be immediately re-activated, being that I was homeless and just previously covered the following year from 2/2013- 3/2014, only lapsing a few months which nothing changed besides more hospital and ER visits. I couldn’t understand the problem, when the Healthcare District had numerous medical bills from my recent previous 6 surgeries and multiple hospital visits, and prescriptions from the prior year 2013 when I was insured.
On 10/14/2014, I spoke with the customer service department for the Healthcare district who preceded to tell me I was not approved yet because their system mysteriously, now showed I owned a business! “Needless to say, I hit the roof!” This was totally wrong and crazy being that I’d just given them a ‘Homeless Declaration Form’ proving my homelessness, and the Healthcare District billing department surely should have medical proof in their systems of many medical bills from coverage 2/2013 – 3/2014, are you serious.
Please tell me how in the world could I own a business, when they knew good and well I’ d been hospitalized and undergoing life-threatening surgeries since 12/2012 when my doctors office initially called them to let them know I needed immediate surgery. Very frustrated I called to speak with the west palm beach area coordinator, to talk about why all of a sudden after being covered for a year and not even a few months lapsing time I now own a business? I explained to her I needed immediate health coverage to be seen and treated for a lump in my breast and other medical conditions dating back from the prior year.
The area coordinator stated, I needed to write a letter stating that I didn’t have a business that never existed! I asked her why in the world would I have to do that, when I gave them a homeless declaration form proving being homeless, along with them having proof of me being hospitalized and under doctors care since 2012, I’m sure the county has paid numerous amounts of medical bills on my behalf from 2/2013 – 8/2014 where I underwent 6 surgeries and was hospitalized numerous times. The area coordinator didn’t want to hear anything I stated, and told me to bring in the letter, or not be approved and hung up the phone. I thought wow, my life is in her hands!
America this has been a medical nightmare I wish upon no human being. I still have no medical insurance and a untreated lump in my breast that could be cancerous, along with having other related life-threatening reproductive health medical problems. In the meantime, I’m being unnecessarily taken through the ringer by the Healthcare District of Palm Beach County!
In my own defense to save my life from possible cancer, I’m writing this for all eye’s to see what’s currently occurring to women and many citizens in America due to a broken healthcare system involving political bureaucracy!
Please realize if this is happening to me, how many others is this happening too? Lives are precious and should not be put through such red tape especially when a citizens life is in danger, and they’ve been in the system a year and few months prior. At this moment my life sits in the hands of a woman at the Healthcare district, I don’t know! In 5 attempts in contacting the area coordinator again this time leaving several messages, I received no return phone call from the area coordinator.
The Healthcare system flaws is not only Florida based it goes all the way up to Washington, who apparently is missing the boat, if millions of U.S. citizens are still currently uninsured, and facing poverty due to a mis-diagnosed medical trauma’s, that are now haunting America’s healthcare industry. Something and many things are off in United States Healthcare and Automobile industries.
All bets are off, when it comes to saving human lives people deserve the right to proper medical treatment, and proper shelter. These are basic necessities in life to survive. The healthcare system is broken in every facet, insurance, pharmaceutical industry, Agencies, Doctors, etc., All of these agencies are gambling with human lives by not providing the basic necessities a human being needs to survive.
By not providing citizens with the bare living necessities such as quality healthcare, and shelter this a direct violation of humanitarian rights. According to the ACLU 3/2014 – U.N. Holds U.S. Accountable for Human Rights Violations at Home and Abroad
“The United States is abandoning its role as the global champion of human rights,” warned Jimmy Carter in a 2012 New York Times op-ed. Less than two years later, Carter’s warning has been vindicated. Yesterday, the U.N. Human Rights Committee issued a blistering report on the U.S. government’s role in perpetuating injustices both within its borders and abroad.
My once healthy product life has been medically turned upside down in a instant! Yours can be to, so be careful, and watch who you vote for! Ensure that the person your voting for will care totally for you and your families best interest. Now is the time to replace all healthcare killers, who are impacting human lives!
All leaders, must ensure every American citizen has all basic necessities to live a normal functional, healthy, stable life while on earth! If fair humanitarian treatment isn’t being provided for U.S. citizens, why should citizens pay taxes, or support leaders who don’t care about the well being of a human life?
