I am appalled.
My first chemotherapy bill has arrived.
Yes, I am insured.
And the system is broken. A village could be fed and have clean water for what my insurance will pay for a single chemo treatment for a middle class white woman in America.
I am so grateful for the gift of my abundance and I simply don’t believe that the drugs I have received – that are old standards – actually need to cost so much.
After appalled, I find that I am sad.
ps: the second round was more gentle, with the dose reduction – I am feeling human seven days out, the last time I was at the ER Tuesday night.
