Hello, I happened to read your article where Dorothy was disappointed that her friend could not afford Genentech’s MS (multiple sclerosis) drug, Ocrevus.
Dear Readers: Our March 9 contrasted emergency room care with urgent care centers. We received a very informative rebuttal from Dr. Andrew Fenton, medical director, Napa Valley Emergency Medical Group.
Dear Tom and Alan: I will be going to work for a new boss soon. They seemed to want me and offered a health plan I’ve never heard of. It’s called a Kaiser HMO with an HRA. I’ve had Kaiser for years through my previous employer, so that part’s fine, but HRA?
Dear Tom and Alan: I think this whole longterm care deal is a scam. Man, I’ve got health insurance, homeowners insurance, car insurance, life insurance (my wife made me get it), house payments, taxes and on and on! How am I supposed to get extra money to pay for a nursing home I may never go to?
Dear Tom and Alan: Recently I received a letter from my primary care physician regarding a change in the structure of his practice from whatever it is now to something called “concierge.”
