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.
