Letter from a patient.
“I have been waiting for a hysterectomy for 3 years in Perryville. I have endured almost continual bleeding for that long. The DOC’s for-profit health insurance will try anything to get out of paying for that surgery. At first, they denied the surgery, then they shot me up with Depo and fertility drugs, then they ignored me. A hemorrhage on my bunk they couldn’t ignore. As I write this, Aug 28th, they say I’ll have my surgery in 4 weeks. Wish me luck.”.
This is not an isolated story, we get many letters just like this one.
