I’m not sure about the first time I heard it, but I think the phrase is some sort of Christian slang.
“Don’t pray for more patience because God will give you an opportunity to learn it.”
I’m pretty sure God doesn’t actually work that way, but due to recent events I am willing to reconsider my stance.
My insurance “recently” (I guess it happened in September but I didn’t have to deal with it until February) added CareCentrix to “provide health care plans and providers with a one-stop solution that coordinates all of a patient’s home health care needs including skilled nursing services, home infusion therapies and durable medical equipment.”
Their website talks about improved patient care and significant cost savings but so far all I’ve experienced is poor customer service and delay after delay. When I first heard about this addition, I headed to google. Not surprisingly, one of the first results was a several page thread of complaints about them on tudiabetes. What else can you expect from a company whose sole purpose is to act as a middleman?
I am still feeling ambivalent about my decision but I am in the middle of a pump company switch. Bennet basically outlined the reasons behind my decision in his post on Thursday. Unfortunately, after several unnecessary delays now my purchase is stuck in a delay of undetermined length.
Remember when “we” all laughed off the Animas warning about the time and date settings? I finally got insurance approval today to order my pump and I can’t. Animas has suspended pump sales until they can solve the leap year problem. Really? I promise to keep an extra eye on my pump in 2016!! My benefits year ends March 31st so let’s pray this is only a brief delay.
“The end of a matter is better than its beginning,
and patience is better than pride.
Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit,
for anger resides in the lap of fools.”
~ Ecclesiastes 7:8-9
