Today I went to @cvspharmacy to pick up prescriptions & take a scheduled #COVIDー19 Test. I arrived 10 mins. early.
Then I sat in the drive-thru line (we're not allowed to come into the store for testing) for 35 mins. They have two lanes, one for testing & script pick ups...
...& one for just prescription pick up.
after 10 mins. of waiting I called the pharmacy I'm, in my car, just outside of. I was then on-hold for 20 mins.
I finally arrived at the window for testing only to be told their 'system' for approving 'insurance' was DOWN.
...
...the SAME insurance that my prescriptions were being approved through.
Guess What? If I was paying 4-5% of my income to have #MedicareForAll Single-payer the 'insurance' hold up would never have happened & I would not be paying a co-pay...

Big changes happening and #nephrologists need to step up… #nephtwitter

Starting Jan 2020 half of #nephrology groups in the US will be assigned to the CMS Kidney Care First (KCF) accountable care model.
If you’re picked you HAVE TO participate, but can opt to switch to one of the other #KCC (Kidney Care Choices) models:

The other payment models (Comprehensive Kidney Care Contracting #CKCC options) vary in amount of risk the neph practice is willing to take on for care of the #CKD patient.
This is at the level of the #nephrology practice NOT at the dialysis unit.
