    So I'm home from Iraq and have developed a bad ear infection.

    Waiting on a referral to see my ENT. 70 minutes and 3 phone calls and I should be good to go tomorrow. Hopefully...

    I hear this from my friend all the time. They are retired and not near any military bases so it is doubly fun dealing with people who don't understand how the insurance works

    Most insurance sucks. It is a trade off though; you trade your time spent on the phone and headache dealing with Tricare for full coverage. Tricare covers some things that most insurance companies don't cover, or only offer coverage in their most expensive plans.

    True. I've walked out of Rite Aid with 3 prescriptions and paid $0.
