I spend many quality hours a week handling Brayden's insurance.  Every week we receive several papers about his insurance claims.  This one today was "nice".  To be honest, I was annoyed before I even opened the letter because of what the envelope says.
The letter inside said,

"To the Parents of Brayden Jenkins,

...we want you to enjoy all the benefits that come with better health...offering you a program...
This program is design to help you manage, maintain or improve your health..."

I think they are really saying that we are high maintenance, they do not like us and our health better improve.  And they have not even received all the paperwork from Brayden's hospital stay last week (the procedures, surgeries, doctors, specialists, PICU, equipment)!

Trust me if we could choose Health or Wellness or Prevention for Brayden we would.

That is so annoying and insulting.
We still get 'health and wellness' information from my mother's insurance company. She died of lung cancer 2 years ago. You would think they would cross reference their mailing list with a 'no longer living' list, but you'd be wrong.

I can't imagine the insurance b.s. you have to put up with on top of everything else. I am a long time lurker, I don't recall how I found your blog, but I pray for Brayden and your family daily. I hope he is on the mend and settling back in at home.

We used to get these for Gavin all the time with our old insurance! Talk about annoying! As if we really want to go to the doctor/hospital all the time! I would love it if their suggestions could cure all the health problems!
