I am middle 50's work full time and fit. One day after a run I found pain in my left knee. After seeing my doctor and Xray's needed an MRI and the wait was 3 to 18 months.

I paid for a private MRI done and found that I have a small tear in my left meniscus and requires surgery.

Now I can't work because my work requires me to walk, lift things and bend down.

My back is out from compensating for the limping and cannot get a surgeon to do the operation because of the backlogs on doctor's. If I leave it this will small tear will grind the cartledge and I will have bigger problems later in my life.

I have to look at private surgery now to fix this quickly before it causes more issues.

Why is MSP receiving my monthly payments for medical and they are not providing me with the service that I need and pay. I am paying for services that MSP cannot provide to me and that is a breach of contract. We need other providers of medical services that will pay doctors and hire new ones that will provide services in a professional and timely manner.
