Headed to the doctor today for my "annual" physical.
My doctor actually requires semiannual visits and will not prescribe meds for more than six months. Because of medicare rules, visits can not be less than six months apart, so I get the first appointment available six months and a day after the last one.
That means that I have gone from my birthday, August 9, to the 19th of September, and next year may actually be in October.
Does that mean the federal government is actually helping keep me young?
