Health Care Rant

I’ve been trying to get a dentist appointment for the last month and a half. It is, apparently, impossible to do this. The first place I called didn’t call back for two weeks, after I’d already called several other dentists. These other dentists have all been booked for the next 3 months or so and they all call back about a week after I first call them. Either that or they tell me I have to register on some roster and wait till the next month to be waitlisted. Unfortunately, there is no place to register on a roster on the Aetna website. Their site tells me to contact the provider directly and the provider tells me to go through Aetna. My teeth are going to rot out before I get a straight answer here. Some good health insurance does me when I can’t even find a place that will let me use it. Gah.
