Was I being a stubborn patient?


Earlier this year, I switched to a cheaper insurance plan without doing a proper investigation.  I should have taken the time to find out if my neurologist takes my new insurance.  They did not take my new insurance, so I could not see my neurologist.

I am happy to say that I have switched to a new health insurance plan.  I did my homework this time, and my neurologist does take this health insurance.  I have an appointment to see her next year.

She is probably not very happy with me.  I made the decision to simply wait until I have new insurance to see her again.   As a result, I haven’t seen her in over 6 months.

Was I being a stubborn and rebellious patient?  Probably. However, she knows my history and does a great job of monitoring my condition.  It is important for me to have a specialist that I trust.
