Happy #wcw to the only woman I know that can pull off sequin glitter pants on a cool October night for @taylorswift’s last concert on the American leg of her #reputationtour. I’m finally now believin’ and maybe it’s true, that I can’t live without you. So maybe two is better than one. ❤️❤️
Excerpt from "Baby Girl" (in progress)
I look at her and wonder, was I enough?
Sometimes, I want to apologise for birthing her into an existence with a flimsy safety net. Sometimes I question, was I enough?
Was I enough to make the life that she didn't ask for... worth it?
Sure, I was a provider, the fixer, the one who made a way, the protector... But I was also the disciplinary, the eye opener, the one who also needed space to sort out her own brokenness.
Was I enough of a comforter, a teacher, a mender of her heart, a soft cushion to fall on?
I never took pride in being a single parent, overcompensating for a void I could not fill. Crying over wounds I could not heal.
No matter how much I overlooked credit to myself, the mounted evidence is overwhelming, I didn't merely do the best I could with what I had... I was divinely chosen... I was more than enough.
Is this the dawn of a new era? 🌅 Are the big health funds FINALLY standing up for fairness?? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Australian Dental Association has been working hard to show the government, and the public, how UNFAIR the rebates from private health insurance can be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, imagine you are paying the SAME amount in insurance premiums as your next door neighbour, to the SAME insurance company, for the SAME level of cover. But because you choose a dentist, physio or podiatrist that you know, like and trust, instead of a preferred provider, you receive a smaller rebate than your neighbour that chose to visit a preferred provider, leaving you more out-of-pocket. How is that possible or fair? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Well, big health funds like Bupa and Medibank Private allow ONLY some health providers to sign up to their “Preferred Provider” schemes where their members receive a higher rebate by using services at those providers compared with the rebates received at other non-preferred providers. These “Preferred Provider” schemes are NOT open to all healthcare providers as health funds place LIMITS on the number of providers they allow to join the scheme as a means to provide an UNFAIR advantage to attract patients to their practice.
Not only has this been taking place for years, it’s also extremely UNFAIR. To you, the consumer and to the healthcare industry. And it’s definitely TIME FOR A CHANGE!
@hbfhealth a major health fund based in W.A., has announced that they are ending these types of arrangements, instead, allowing ANY provider to sign up to a new agreement where members will receive the same rebate for the same item codes if they have the same level of cover 🙌 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At Method Dental, we welcome these changes as we, and the Australian Dental Association strongly believe that the relationship between you and your healthcare provider should not be interfered with by any outside influences. Who you choose as YOUR healthcare provider should be based on TRUST and shared VALUES ❤️
We’re excited to see what the future holds because it’s ABOUT TIME things start changing for the better. For equality. It’s the only way forward 👊👊
