WTF Medical Aid Funding Requests #1

What is a reasonable request from your medical funder? This All Scrubbed Up series looks at funding requests - from the sublime to the ridiculous.

Just remember. A medical aid funder is allocating money to all their members for REAL medical reasons.

Part 1. Eye are not wearing glasses.

Middle age male requests payment in full for laser optic surgery. Male has optical limit, as with most benefits. Reason for requesting full payment: He currently feels that he cannot do occasional activities of daily living, like volleyball and playing with his kids while wearing glasses. In a motivation, the middle aged male said: "They might come off or get broken!".

Further information was volunteered. "I can't wear contact lenses, because I couldn't imagine sticking something in my eye."
