Medicine is SO Frustrating…

Suzanne FiscelIa, PA-C, BCPA / October 10, 2017


I went in for my annual mammogram.  The radiology center now has this kiosk where you sign in.  So, I started signing in.  Five minutes into this procedure, it says, “Your copay is $224.00”.  And, of course, you can’t keep signing in unless you stick your credit card in the machine.  I’m frustrated because there is no description of service, no reason given why my copay is $224.00.  So, I stopped, signed out and went to the front desk.

I said to the receptionist, “I can’t sign in because it wants $224.00 and does not tell me why. And the last time I paid a copay it took 13 months for me to get a refund so unless I have a description, I’m not just going to pay.”  She says, “Oh, I’ll sign you in.  Just pay like $25 or $50 and then after insurance pays, you can see what you actually owe and pay the rest later.”

Grrr.  The kiosk didn’t give me that option. How frustrating…

I know exactly what it's like to feel like you just can't keep up. Working a full-time job, raising 3 children as a single mom, and taking care of her aging mother. But after feeling lost, overwhelmed, and guilty for spreading herself too thin, I saw all her patients and their caregivers going through the same thing. I learned how to put simple systems in place to keep my life free from distractions, find free time to do the things I wanted, and enjoy my family along the way. These simple step-by-step solutions have been shared with my patients, friends, and family. They too have found organization, confidence, peace, and freedom. Now we all live the life we love while caregiving! Come join us!
