    Oh, you can get them but the insurance company penalizes if they are written. If you write more than a certain # (which is quite small) then you are penalized a % of withhold permanently- even if you go to another practice. I ignored what they wanted until I was threatened by my boss to dock my pay if I hit the threshold. Thinking about this stuff really makes me crazy. People have no idea what a choke hold the insurance companies have on how we practice.

    Good Evening Lodge!

    Along the lines of meds, I'm overdue for my meds. I get a phone call 4x/year to refill my prescription. Haven't gotten one this quarter. Went to the doc's, and found that I have to set up an appt to get the OK for another year of refill. No notice from the pharm company about my script running out, no anything. The doc is simply the middleman in this case* and they confirmed that is what happened.

    This has changed since I started getting this med a couple years ago. The company was on the ball, maybe even over-aggressive on it. Ugh. Thankfully, the doc had a spare dose of what I needed, so I still got it. (Yes, it's covered under insurance, I actually pay nothing due to a change in my insurance policy, since I was grandfathered in before all this health care mess started).

    *Doc/middleman: it has to be refrigerated, so my med is delivered to the doc's office, since if it were delivered to my apt, it would go bad/be ineffective by the time I got to my mailbox/office.

    Re: Rep Retirement Lodge: The Banana Bread Is Running Out

    Worked from home today. It was (and still is) so gross out. Been a long two days...well, week at work. Had a bit of a meltdown with a colleague because I was late with a presentation...too long and complicated to go into. I wound up having to have a talk with my boss. Got the "you need to grow" talk. It was unsettling. Things at the company have changed in the past year, overall talent changes. You know what annoys me? I'm happy at my job. I'm well liked. I like what I do. I'm really good at it. I'm not looking to get promoted or move up. And now I feel I may be punished for it, you know? I know what I want to do and I also know what I don't want to do. Why is that a bad thing? Gah. Maybe it is time for me to rethink things. I just wouldn't know the first thing about looking for a new position. I have no time to deal with that.

    Anyway, today I spent 40 minutes at Best Buy's Geek Squad, then another 45 minutes on the phone with Comcast, then another almost TWO hours on the phone with Microsoft Support and still have no resolution. I have a Mac with have Microsoft Office365 loaded on it and use Outlook for my email. It's a Comcast email account. For some reason, Outlook isn't connecting to the Comcast mail server. I can get my mail on my iPhone, iPad and through the Xfinity website so Comcast says it's not them. The Geek Squad guy deleted the email account and now it can't be added back in. The Microsoft support guy also tried the default mail app that came with the computer. That also would not connect to the Comcast server so he thinks it's Comcast. So I have to call Comcast back. Not going to do that till tomorrow. My brain hurt by the end of all that.

    No hockey for me this weekend but I was remiss in mentioning I was at the HHT last week!

    sure you know this, but a person has to realize that when they stay in a role they are limited themselves. at some point if you expect a raise year after year you price yourself out of that position. roles budget for x-to-y, and if after how many years to end up being z the raises and bonuses will tighten or disappear altogether. plus you are at the top of the list when it comes times to reduce cost

    *HT officially, but it sounded like a much improved effort than the past couple seasons.

    Yeah, for the most part. Youngest team in college on the road, first (real) game of the season? I would have been surprised if we won.
