Prepare for a whole new dimension in Reefercake productions…presenting Mrs. Reefercake on the Drums!!
Last friday on the Majority Report, someone IM’d about Huntington’s disease…also said they liked my song “how’d you get that job?” but that is beside the point…They were worried about getting tested, because they could be nailed with a pre-existing condition.
I am obsessed with healthcare system, kind of how sammy is obsessed with social security. I googled around and found this. The situation is pretty fucked up – essentially you need to hide and lie and play games….
from this site…
“Are the test results confidential?
Test results should be kept confidential and should only be given to another person with your written permission. On an initial call to a testing center, you should ask how confidentiality is ensured.”
so go and get the test, but make sure the place is confidential and only get a claim in for your insurance, if your test comes up clean.
If you do test positive for the huntington’s disease gene, don’t submit the claim, and keep if confidential. Also keep in mind, that marijuana has been effective in treatment, so keep hope alive, there are treatments. Best wishes.
