After waiting two years for an MRI and receiving the results, I received a call yesterday informing me I have to attend two mandatory group “pain management” sessions prior to seeing the one and only doctor available for treatment in Nanaimo.
I am informed I have to attend these group therapy sessions and once complete, it will take about six months to get to see the doctor. All of this just to get a spinal cortisone injection.
You see, my back is worn out from working. Pain management? Been doing that for years. And I’ve been paying my B.C. medical like many others who are being hoaxed into believing our medical system works.
However, once again, solid proof that the health system in B.C. is just a laughable joke and just can’t perform.
A world-class health care system is only something to brag about if residents can access services in a timely and cost-effective manner.
B.C.’s publicly-funded health care system ensures that all eligible B.C. residents have access to medically necessary health care services through the Medical Services Plan and to eligible prescription medications, medical supplies and pharmacy services through the PharmaCare program.
There is no doubt the politicians and public employees still insist on this theory: if you tell the same lie often enough, people will believe it.
