This story is serious as a heart attack and almost too ridiculous for me to wrap my head around. Help me out.
I received a big welcome packet from (finally) a health insurance plan, full of exclusions and riders but a plan nonetheless. In the packet are several “member’s discount” items, including low-cost vitamins, chiropractic care and health club memberships. All understandable, as they relate to well-being. Okay, no problem there, right?
I get to the last page and what’s being promoted?
“Customized Web Services”
Web design services (redesigns a specialty) with HTML programming “experts” and “Web Marketing Promotion Specialists” at the ready to help you get your site up and running in a few days. And a 20% discount for health plan members!
I’m thinking I’ll take a redesign with my liver transplant, please. How about you?
