    Why is it so difficult!!

    Advertisements
    Now I know why I havent made an appointment to get my wrist checked out...because I need a referall from Tricare if I want to go to a orthopedic .

    Why haven't gotten a referral?
    Because I need to be seen by a doctor on base first.

    Why havent I been seen by a doctor from base?
    Because I have to make an appointment.

    Why havent I made an appointment yet?
    Because they keep me on hold for like 30 minutes.
    and every two minutes the machine says "Your call is important to us...yada yada yada........"


    I just really need to get an appointment set up.
    My wrist really does hurt.

    And that is the reason why I'm on Standard.

    I know lots of people like Prime, but that would drive me bonkers (and did for the small amount of time I was on Prime).

    ETA: I would just go to Urgent Care. They can at least x-ray it etc.

    I really was thinking of doing that.

    I was planning on telling them that it hurt so much that I couldnt stand the pain any longer...
    Which is true..but only when I put pressure on it

    I HATE the referral process...prime is the only option here in Germany, and I do not like it >.<. It took a month to get a test set up for off base, and now I have to wait to see the results through the clinic (after they translate them!). This is WAY too slow! Standard can get expensive, but at least the health care seems a lot better!

    So sit on hold and make your appointment. Be glad you aren't trying to make an appointment through the VA Hospital. That is stress.

    You can always ask your doctor to make the referral urgent than it gets approved way faster.

    I would, but I am at work, and I can only make appointments from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm, which is during my work hours. :sadyeyes
