Dealing with United Health Care is like pulling teeth

I want the same kind of health insurance that Luci Baines Johnson, the youngest daughter of President Lyndon Johnson, has.

The 62-year-old Johnson recently was flown by air ambulance from Dallas to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota for what doctors suspect is a rare, autoimmune disorder affecting her nervous system. Flown by air ambulance?

No disrespect intended toward the former President, his family or its wealth, but being flown by air ambulance to one of the world's best hospitals sounds plenty expensive and somehow I think isn't anything my health carrier, United Health Care, plans on doing for me or my family any time soon.
