No surprise this week’s Libra New Moon ushered in some important changes for me. The day of the New Moon I found out I needed to find a new primary care physician because Medicare does not recognize naturopathic doctors. Whilst I love my doctor and will continue seeing her occasionally to tune up my supplements, it is more important in the long view to establish new relationships with other medical professionals.
I sat down and drew a couple of cards for advice on this situation and the first card was the Seven of Cups. Yup! Lots of choices and only a few of them viable! Wading thru information of Medicare coverage, Medicare supplemental insurance and Part D coverage for prescriptions are enough to drive anyone slightly nuts. Not to mention calling around to find out if there were any doctors locally even accepting new patients on Medicare. Gah!
The second card was the Star, giving me hope of a positive outcome. Turns out the clinic I went to last year for some tests just added a new doc who filled the bill. This works outs very well because he can access all my medical records and history easily. There is a good women’s health clinic in the same system too. Ironically, this will be the first time in my life I will have similar access to healthcare as most of you do through your employers. Being self employed has serious drawbacks and unaffordable health insurance is one of them. I don’t even want to think about paying the full amounts of income tax instead of the half employers don’t pay.
The New Moon opposing Uranus has kept me away from my computer and out doing things with my Ram – both work and play. Very busy times lately where thoughts of cloning myself sound good. *grin*
