To who this may concern: I recently phoned to make a appt. I poured my heart out,, about my fear of dentist, and I also have anxiety.
At the beginning of conversation I asked about my Insurance, I asked, do you take Commonwealth Health Care Alliance, the woman I spoke to said, Do you pay for insurance? I said yes, I do. After explaining my fears, and she comforted me saying, no worries, basically stated Aspen Dental would take very good care of you. I was happy to know that I might be able to smile, without being so embarassed at Christmas.
So, off to appt. I go. When I arrived at 245 pm, a young girl was working as a receptionist, she greeted me with a smile, said Charlene? I replied yes, Welcome she said.
Then asked for my insurance cards, I handed her My medicare,and the Mass Health card i was given to use on this account. Meanwhile, there was a gentleman sitting in waiting area, and another man standing by me. She looked up at me, and said NO! We don't take Mass Health, and handed my cards to me.
I explained when I made the appt. I asked that question, and the woman said yes we do. I wanted to scream, but after everyone heard her say no, Mass. Health, i figured i was embarassed enough, and out the door I wait.
She did said well, today is free anyways, you can have that, I said no, why bother, I have to start all over again, and find someone to help me. I arrived at home, pulled up my lap top, typed in the Insurance I have, and a question, who can take this insurance? Well, don't you know, Aspen Dental popped up. So, my question is, why are you on the list?
If you want to make people feel like low LIFE'S, well it work's. I spill my guts out, all about my anxiety and this is how you treat people. I think you should, removed your name under their list, and like the girl said, We take Delta, and other private Insurance, but NO, Not Mass Health! Thank's for treating me like this, and Thank's for all your help!!!
