WHEN YOU NEED A DOCTOR

WHEN YOU NEED A DOCTOR
(To tune of “Some Enchanted Evening,” by Rodgers and Hammerstein from Broadway show and later film, “South Pacific).

When you need a doctor.
You don’t call the doctor.
Now ‘days first you call The
Insurance Company.
And speak to a clerk
whose diagnosis
determines if they pay
or you pay, for this.

When it’s really painful
from a broken ankle.
Hop ‘round on one foot, The
Insurance Company
tells you while you wait.
And here is the gist.
The doctor whom you want
is not on their list.

Once had a doctor
who looked after me.
Now I pay a comp’ny.
Who looks out for me?

When I need a doctor.
I don’t have a doctor.
Now I only have The
Insurance Company
examine the costs
watch its bottom line
And make all decisions
for its health, not mine.

Once had a doctor
who looked after me.
Now I pay a comp’ny.
Who looks out for me?
