OH YES, THE HMO BLUES
ARE ALL OVER THE NEWS.
PATIENTS LOSE ALL THEIR FIGHTS,
ĎCAUSE THEY AINíT GOT NO RIGHTS.
PROTECT US ALL, PLEASE!

HMOS DONíT DO TESTS,
UNLESS THEYíRE UNDER ARREST.
DONíT FRET OVER THAT LUMP,
IN EVERY LIFE THEREíS A BUMP.
ITíLL JUST GO AWAY.

JOIN OUR MEDICARE HMO,
UNTIL YOUíRE SIX FEET BELOW.
WEíLL TREAT YOUR MOM LIKE OUR OWN,
UNTIL SHE GETS ON OUR PHONE.
WEíLL PUT HER ON HOLD!

HMOS ARE A DEAL,
UNTIL YOU TRY TO APPEAL.
YOU WONíT KNOW WHERE YOUíRE AT,
WHEN YOU MEET OUR BUREAUCRATS.
GIVE UP CAUSE YOUíLL LOSE!

WEíRE HERE FOR EMERGENCIES,
IF YOU HAVE HEART DISEASE
APPROVALíS NOT GUARANTEED,
ĎCAUSE WEíLL SAY THEREíS NO NEED.
GO READ YOUR CONTRACT!

DRIVE-THRU DELIVERIES ARE GREAT,
IF YOU HAVE A LATE DATE.
THE SAME DAY MASTECTOMY
CUTS COSTS FOR YOUR SURGERY.
SMILE LIKE GOOD LITTLE GIRLS!

HMOS ALWAYS RESIST
YOUR RIGHT TO A SPECIALIST.
GATEKEEPERS POLICE YOUR CARE,
AND TELL YOU LIFE ISNíT FAIR.
YOUR REQUEST IS DENIED!

HMO BUSINESS PLAN GOALS
AVOID FINANCIAL BLACK HOLES.
OUR DOCTORS RATION YOUR CARE,
AND PRETEND YOUíRE NOT THERE.
THATíS OUR BOTTOM-LINE!

CONTROL OF MEDICAL FILES
CAUSES HMO SMILES.
YOUR RECORDS WILL DISAPPEAR
ALONG WITH YOUR DOCTORíS FEAR.
YOU CANíT GET NUTHINí ON US.

YOUR DOCTORS STOP WORK AT 5
SO YOU MAY NOT SURVIVE.
DONíT EVER CALL THEM AT NIGHT.
OUTTA MIND, OUTTA SIGHT.
THATíS JUST NOT THEIR JOB!

YOUíRE SUPPOSED TO ASK QUESTIONS
AND MAKE CONSTRUCTIVE SUGGESTIONS.
COMPLAIN TO CUSTOMER SERVICE
WHOíLL TEACH YOU NOT TO DISTURB US.
DONíT BASH HMOS!

WE MAKE CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS
TO STOP LEGAL SOLUTIONS.
WE DONíT WANT NO REGULATIONS
TO MAKE US HELP PATIENTS.
UNCHAIN HMOS!

HMOS PLAY HARDBALL.
WE KNOW HOW TO STONEWALL.
PATIENTS DONíT KNOW OUR RULES
SO THEYíRE EASY TO FOOL.
JUST LIKE FORREST GUMP!

WE PAY YOUR DOCTORS MORE
IF THEY KICK YOU OUT THE DOOR.
ONE THING THAT DOCTORS LAMENT
IS THEIR UNEMPLOYMENT.
YOUR DOC WORKS FOR US!

WE DO ADS, INFOMERCIALS
AND TV COMMERCIALS
IF YOU BELIEVE ALL OUR HYPE
YOUíRE THE HMO TYPE.
YOUíRE HARRY AND LOUISE!

HMOS USE WEASAL WORDS,
BECAUSE PATIENTS ARE NERDS.
ITíS OUR JOB TO MISLEAD.
THATíS WHAT WE DO TO SUCCEED.
OUR PROFITS COME FIRST.

WE PRESERVE HMO WEALTH,
SACRIFICING YOUR HEALTH.
YOU SHOULDNíT EAT SMOKE OR DRINK.
NEVER MAKE YOUR BRAIN THINK.
TRUST YOUR HMO!

IF YOU THINK MY SONGíS TRUE,
I CAN HELP PROTECT YOU.
MY HUSBANDíS BOOK DOES THE JOB
TO STOP THE HMO MOB.
HMO HARDBALLíS THE NAME.
