Parrot Lovers covered by Obamacare

I look at many thing and scratch my head.  It part of that raised in another era thing that separates the generations.  But, every once in a while, there is something that can give a laugh or tears across generation.  It is something that is so stupid that it’d only seem normal on The Big Bang Theory.

New government rules will increase the number of medical billing codes to 68,000 from 14,000, creating added complexity and cost for hospitals and health insurers, the Boston Globe reports.

Exactly how detailed are all these new medical descriptions?

Code W61.01XA: bitten by a parrot, initial encounter

Code V95.43: spacecraft collision injuring occupant.

Code V97.33XD: sucked into a jet engine, subsequent encounter…

Get ready for a paperwork meltdown at the medical office.

I wonder of there’s one for “Laughing to death at government wonks.”?

ADDENDUM:

Speaking of (former) government wonks run amok….

Members of the Long Beach, California transit board report receiving calls from Vice President Gore before they voted on a contract to buy electric buses, the Long Beach Press Telegram reports. Gore-affiliated companies were investors in one of the companies competing for the contract.

    I wonder if there’s code for being bit by the poker bug. I sure miss the old days.

    I miss them too, Dave.  It was about 3-4 hours every day exercising my mind.  It was therapeutic.  I still even had a house that I hadn’t clicked on and lost.
    Sparky,  at least it isn’t terminal.
