ha! our company is self-insured. as such, they are implementing programs to try to get people to be healthier, but also "incent" (*spit*) them to use their health care benefits in more cost effective ways.

they give an example of how xrays can be effective and are less expensive than an mri.

out of all this, someone says, "I think we need an advocate, someone to tell us what treatments we should get and shouldn't get. i wouldn't know that about xrays and mris."

great. she was just advocating that the company hire someone to counsel us about whether we should get X treatment or Y, this diagnostic or that. OMFG

the CEOs answer was, "honey, if you pay for it, you will find out which is cheaper and educate yourself about xrays vs mris."

oh fuckmedead. *rolls eyes*
