I wonder if she goes to an urgent care clinic or a mall clinic where you do not see a specific doctor.
That is possible. I have never been to urgent care or anything other than hospital ER or a regular doctors office so I'm not sure how that works. I always assumed urgent care was pretty much the equivalent of a hospital ER but maybe I was wrong. Now that I think about it she's probably been changing doctors so frequently lately because of the exceptional haydurs calling and harassing the places she's been going. It's not like going to a new doctor is really gonna be beneficial to her unless she's trying to get a diagnosis she likes and can put on social media to prove everyone wrong with. They probably all cost about the same for someone with no insurance and like I said before, going to a new doctor is tedious as fuck bc of all the paperwork and whatnot you have to do.

Didn't amber go to wommart for yogurt when she got the first rx, back when she was still claiming her dr appointment was to treat a cold. So amber already knows what works for her, what's best for her body, to counteract antibiotic side effects. She needs either a new excuse or the ability to remember her lies.
She did, all the while bitching about how she hates yogurt.

Urgent care is like a regular doctor's office except it has extended hours and weekend hours and you can walk in off the street if you have something awful that suddenly happened. It's also very expensive. Like say you fall down the stairs at the bar because some exceptional individual spills beer. You sprain your ankle. It's Friday night and your ankle looks like a grapefruit so Saturday AM you head to the nearest urgent care.

Edit re centralized records: The USA is not like this. You have to sign papers to get them to send your records to another doctor for any reason.

here in the US we see one doctor (that’s how it’s been for me anyway, I’ve had insurance my entire life) It may be different if you don’t have insurance. This is why she goes to the ER a lot because that’s what people with no insurance do. They just put the bill on your credit.

when you go to a new doctor you have to fill out a ton of paperwork and it’s very tedious. I’m sure there’s a way for them to get your history but it’s probably time consuming.

Thanks for these replies! Very helpful to someone who has no experience of that kind of medical system, to understand it

I shall puzzle no longer how fat-asses like Assanti and Albert carry on their medical shenanigans, makes more sense now!

Eventually, this is going to catch up with her, as she will begin to have unignorable chronic issues that aren't considered emergencies to be treated at the ER, and won't be treated at urgent care. Things requiring specialists, testing, continued care.

She's in a real bind because insurance is expensive to begin with, and she's going to be charged premiums for weight, being a woman of childbearing age, and preexisting conditions. While our system isn't centralized, insurance companies have their ways of finding things out. So if she really has high blood pressure, diabetes, whatever, even if she's not treating it, they're going to find out. Post-Obamacare, people can't be turned away for preexistng conditions, nor can they have riders placed on those conditions (it used to be that non-group insurance could say "ok, you have asthma (just a random example), so we're not going to cover anything related to lungs even pneumonia). So she'll have insurance premiums as if she was going to actively treat those conditions.

Amber has one more year to be eligible for catastrophic insurance (well she missed the deadline, but lets say in theory she got it this year - she can only get it till 30), there would be low premiums, but such a high deductible, she'd need a catastrophe, heart surgery, cancer, multiple broken bones, before it would kick in. However, that should provide a waiver of continuity of care, which means that when she went to get regular insurance the next year, she shouldn't have a higher premium for her preexisting conditions other than fat and the whole childbearing age thing. (this is just speculation. I don't see why someone would bother otherwise)

Regular insurance (non-catastrophic) would be a minimum of 500 (and that's being conservative) a month for the lowest tier, which would mean a 1-3k deductible, and high co-pays and high co-insurance. In amber's mind, insurance is useless, because she has to pay every month for a service she doesn't use every month, and then pay more money when she does use it. To get a gold plan with ALL the coverage, low-to-no deductible, and low co-pays, low out of pocket maxes, low-to-no co-insurance, it would probably cost her 1k, maybe more each month? Maybe someone who is more familiar with the kentucky exchange (from a cursory glance it looks like there's very little competition there, probably driving prices high) can weigh in, or someone with general experience getting non-group insurance as an overweight person or someone with preexisting conditions. (most people avoid these issues because they get insurance through work which is usually around 150 to 300 per check, with varying co-payments and coverage, but a group plan doesn't increase premiums for specific individuals, regardless of their health conditions).

Hopefully this will help non-americans understand why people like amber are foolishly against getting insurance. She can't rub her grubby fingers all over it like her tatty earrings, she can't use it for a haul, it's not stuff accumulating to make her happy. In her mind, it's like wasted money. At least when she goes to the doctor and pays out the ass for treatment (or skips out on payment) there are goods/services exchanged for money. If pressed, and creative, amber might say that she needs to be an out-of-pocket patient for the deduction to offset her earnings, but that's bullshit too.

I certainly understand why she may not want to get health insurance. However, if we assume that she was able to get some insurance this year, can she go to a bariatric surgeon and ask him/her to do the surgery, and the health insurance company will pay whatever the surgeon ask? How does this work?

It would depend on what the plan covers. Most plans don't cover anything weight-loss related, so doctors put it through as a mitigating factor for some other condition (I'm not sure how they code it, but as a similar example, most insurance won't cover cosmetic surgery, but will cover nose jobs for "deviated septums" or breast reductions for back pain).

But as I mentioned in the other comment, there's a difference between large group plans (through an employer) and very small group/individual insurance. Large group plans wouldn't have limitations for individuals, but small group/individual insurance would. They could consider this a pre-existing condition and might not approve it, or she might have to be on the plan for a year or so before it would be covered. It would also be subject to the deductible and probably co-insurance. So let's say her deductible was 3k, she'd have to pay that first, then of the remainder, it would depend on her co-insurance. For a lower cost plan, her co-insurance for something like this could be 40-70% meaning the insurance company would only pay 30-60% of the cost, less her 3k deductible.

So IF she had insurance and IF the plan covered this, she'd still have to fork out a lot of cash out of pocket, likely upfront. I really, really doubt an average individual plan would cover it, and if they did, it would take a lot of time and effort to get approved.

If she got insurance through an employer (if it was a large enough group policy, I think there has to be 51+ employees insured to be a large group), with a good plan, she'd have an easier time getting it covered, and her costs would probably be limited to office and surgery co-payments (which is a set price, unlike co-insurance, which is a percentage of the procedure).

ETA: I don't want to get too technical about american insurance, but the two types that are most standard are HMO and PPO. The former is cheaper, but requires you to go to a primary care provider and get a referral to a specialist. So when you ask if she could just go to a bariatric surgeon if she had insurance, unless she was paying a ton for a PPO, which allows you to go to specialists w/o a referral, the primary care doctor could always force her to try every other (cheaper) method of weight loss for months before referring to a bariatric dr.

Supposedly she just finished taking antibiotics for 2 months straight so she's worried she'll build up a tolerance to them. Oh and apparently they were soooo hard on the dainty bacteria in her stomach 😂 personally I don't recall ever having legitimate side effects from antibiotics but maybe that's just me.

Frankly I think she's acting sketchy about them currently because the whole tonsillitis thing IS sketchy. I'll never understand why she chooses to be sneaky about such mundane shit 😂
Yeah but most of us presumably don't weigh as much as a refrigerator.

It’s horrifying every time I think about being in ambers body. She’s just so fucking massive. I imagine like... idk normal shit. Like her heart must just be completely slathered in lard. Her bones must have weird bending in them. Her knee caps..... just I know this is morbid. But I would actually pay money to see an autopsy done on her. Just so I can see what the inside looks like. That shit is wrecked bro.

So no more UTI? had she said that in a video and I missed it?? Crazy that she wouldn't make a big deal about this long lasting UTI finally going away??

Now I'm thinking the UTI was fake or that, let's say, she no longer feels pain for whatever reason and assumes that means its finally over, without doctor confirmation... cause she would've made a vlog about going to the ER or a doctor, right? So even if it's gone she doesnt have a doctor telling her that.

Any thoughts? What's she full of it about?

At her weight and with her size, I would not be surprised if she was on medication for her back pain. I am pretty sure that all her joints ache too. So, if she is on pain medication, she may not notice the UTI anymore. It might explain why she stop the antibiotics early, thinking that is cured.

I don't think she sees a physician often enough to get scripted pain meds.
To be getting narcotics she would have to be going to a pain clinic- because most primary Drs don't write them out anymore and if her problem is chronic- which it would be- she would be referred to a clinic.
But hell who am I kidding. Shes too damn lazy to go through all those steps.
And bottom line- she doesn't have an established physician to get drugs on a consistent basis.

I've said this before somewhere but I think that her body is always constantly in pain from just being so fucking huge that she probably doesn't feel or notice the pain in some areas like a normal person would.

It originates from an interview Katie Couric did with Sarah Palin, who is possibly even stupider than Big Al, and who most certainly was the dumbest and most vapid VP candidate this nation (the US) has ever had.

The meme-tastic clip:

That's so funny! I feel so embarrassed for her but at the same time that's so bad... why would she bother being a politician if she cant even answer a question like that?

Tbh it's weird to make the comparison with how I watch that clip, I'm embarrased and feel bad for her. But when amberlynn is blatantly dodging a question or making shit on the spot, I get pissed and annoyed. Maybe cause I dont know enough about Palin to assume shes a bad person like I feel for amber.
