Broken: Health insurance service

AppointmentKaren Bencke writes:

I am insured by Health Partners through my employer. I tried to use Health Partners new, and highly advertised, online appointment scheduler to set up an appointment with a dermatologist. I did not limit my request with days or times thinking this would result in a larger listing of appointments to choose from. Attached is the response I got.

Four and a half months before there is a single opening? Their best solution is for me to see my primary doctor, a general practitioner? This is from the SAME health care provider that touts "Same day appointments" in their radio and print advertising!


I think she didn't want her name to be printed, but Mark saw the name from the Sender in his email and just added it.

Also: It should be "Health Partners' new", with an apostrophe.

Maybe Bencke is a psuedonym

I think Mark should remove her last name, at least, from the post, since it's fairly easy to find her name/address from the information listed.

Well, i guess that same day appointments means, appointments the same day that they are schedueled for.

you can get an appointment the same day. Just an appointment for the same day.
