"Does She Have Insurance?" "What Plan?"

Two questions that have been posed frequently of me, and of the kid's pediatrician, ophthalmologist and neuro-ophthalmologist more times than I can count.

I'm convinced that, had the answers been different, the kid would have never received the immediate treatment she did, and my heart breaks for the parents of children who may not receive the care they need when the answers to those two questions differ.

Has the Hippocratic Oath become a Hypocritical Oath?
