The Doctors' Strike

Today I received a check from my private insurance company, a bonus for having NOT activated my policy when I had my appendix removed.  The letter accompanying the check explained that they paid me 50% of the amount that the surgeon would have been paid for performing his job.  If I am doing my math correctly, the surgeon would have earned about 3100 NIS.

Wow.  Now I understand why they are striking.

I do, however, appreciate the check; though it doesn't quite make up for the two weeks I did not work, or for the slower Chiropractic season in the Summer, every little bit helps.
