If you are in the real estate business, the key word is location, location, location.
Just about any other business -- and I've been in a bunch of them, including teaching! -- the key word is timing. Timing is EVERYthing!!
Earlier today I attended an updated WellCare (my healthcare provider) presentation on changes for 2009.
I went into the meeting 'not a happy camper' ... took me almost an hour to get there, for one thing, what with the rain, etc., plus I was ready to 'pick a fight' with slights that I had perceived existed within their system, including not providing me with a list that I had requested months ago in re doctor's names in various specialties.
And so I arrived late. There was this really good-looking black dude conducting the presentation who seemed to know what the devil he was talking about.
I apologized for being late.
I opened the pretty good-sized packet I had received in the mail from WellCare just within the past week, and was cruising through it while at the same time trying to listen to his presentation.
I told myself, "Self, don't interrupt. Just listen!"
And so I did. Learned a few things. (There's nothing quite like knowing a little bit about something to attend an 'update' lecture, is there?)
It seems as tho, altho the dermatologist I have been seeing for some years now does not currently have a contract with WellCare, one of the associates she referred me to a few years back does! And so, it's "Goodbye, Jennie Duffy, hello Bruce Nelson."
Also, I learned that I do not have to go through my primary physician to see a specialist who has a contract with WellCare. Isn't that interesting??
That means that my upcoming cataract surgery (next year, probably) will be covered.
This is a good day, I feel certain!
Not only all of that, but do you know what they (WellCare) were giving away today? Umbrellas, can you believe it? I could have used one going to and from the house to the garage earlier.
