Trapped inside the 

Health care maze.

Spinning, confused,

Stumbling, dazed.


Biopsy ordered-

Labwork sent,

Referals, Appointments, 

Specialist went.


I feel hopeless,

Helpless, fazed,

Pinned down, trapped,

Angry! Crazed!


Out of network?

Not Covered? Copays?

Coinsurance? Deductibles?

Will my insurance pay?

  1. I know and have heard of many people in this situation. It’s so sad on top of results coming back that add insult to injury. Great poem.

  2. I’ve never seen a poem on this topic but so very many of us flounder around in exactly the same dilemma. This poem makes me also think of a specimen under the microscope. Nice!
