Before surgery, my insurance company said I wouldn't have to pay. After surgery, that's changed. What now?

Before having surgery, I was told by my insurance company that my deductible had been reached, and that there was nothing for me to pay. After surgery, they amended that, telling me that in fact my deductible had not been filled at all for the present period, and I *would* have to pay. Am I just screwed here? [more inside]

Are my dad's doctors making him sicker?

This is my first Ask MeFi question, and I'm asking on behalf of my parents. My father is in reasonably good physical health but poor mental health, which may be related to the meds he's on and the "quality" care he's getting in the American "system". Are there some kind of additional resources for me or them to help make their way through the bureaucrat-ese and get some better care? And maybe some additional health care (or heck, elder care in general) resources I could find for them? [more inside]

Great Ideas to Improve Australian Healthcare?

If you were having lunch with the Australian Minister for Health which new, innovative, targeted and cost effective measures would you suggest to improve health care in Australia? Ideas could focus on regional services, mental health, hospitals and nursing or GP services, preventative health and so forth. Links to fresh, successful strategies in other countries or well argued position papers would be appreciated. Simply suggesting spending more money isn't an option. This question has nothing to do with the oft rehearsed arguments over health insurance and provision in the USA.

Can you suggest resources for a cancer survivor who works with cancer patients?

My SO is a speech therapist/speech pathologist at a major hospital, and her department specializes in cancer patients. This can take a quite a toll on her, but the impact has worsened following her own skin cancer diagnosis last year. I was wondering if there were any books, websites, programs or resources designed to help healthcare providers deal with working with these kinds of cases, and perhaps also ones to deal with dealing with cancer diagnoses.

How do I contest a medical bill?

I went to the emergency room a few months ago for a back injury, and, to be honest, I don't feel like the medical services provided to me were adequate. I saw a doctor for about 45 seconds the entire time I was there. When I was leaving, they gave me information for "if my chest started hurting later," despite my protests that my back was the injured part, and the next day, I discovered the X-rays they had taken were of my chest, not my back. Now that I have the bill, can I contest it? [more inside]
