I recently saw my oncologist and found out that six brain met's were discovered. To my surprise, he asked me have I ever considered the ethics of dying so that the insurance company and other people can save money.
I said I pay almost $6900 a year in monthly premiums and another $5000 a year to satisfy the insurance deductible. My answer is his ethics question was "NO." I've my premiums and should not be made to feel guilty about it.
If I were in rapidly declining heath and getting much older, he might have a point. In another two weeks, I'll be getting "gamma knife surgery" as well as additional chemo for my lung cancer.
What do the members of this forum think about this? I think my oncologist was weigh out of line to be giving me ethical advice on this matter. My brother and I agree that if I were to report this to the management at the hospital, I could get the onc. fired for his own breach of ethics. :twisted:
