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.
