WELCOME TO DOCWAGON
剧透 - : > Everyone, this is NurseNancy—she’s an agent that DocWagon provides to their customers. I’ve uploaded a copy here to answer any questions you might have about your DocWagon coverage. If you don’t have a health service provider connected to one of your SINs, you should get one. Street docs, slap patches, and what passes for first aid from other runners might do in a pinch, but it’s only a matter of time before you get too fragged to walk. You’ll want real doctors, real hospitals, and if you’re willing to pay out of your hoop, a high threat response team to extract you out of the bad situation that fragged you in the first place. I’ve left NurseNancy open to edits to allow runners to comment on those grey areas where we need info that most DocWagon customers skim over. One piece of advice: Her current setting as the nice, matronly Sioux nurse is the least obnoxious one, so leave those settings be.

WHAT IS A HEALTH SERVICE PROVIDER? WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS BESIDES DOCWAGON?

--- 引用 ---DocWagon is the world’s largest health service provider. Founded in 2037, the company spearheaded the field of armed medical response, which remains its primary profit center. DocWagon operates several urgent care clinics throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. DocWagon Industries manufactures rapid response vehicles via partnerships with companies like Ares, Hughes, and Aeroquip. Tactical Medical Solutions Inc. trains and equips armed medical response units, including DocWagon’s innovative High Threat Response teams. Apex Pharmaceuticals provides branded prescription alternatives, offering DocWagon subscribers maximum flexibility in price and potency.

--- 引用 ---CrashCart [link] began when ex-DocWagon staff members pooled their resources to provide an alternative to DocWagon’s armed response care. Backed by the Yamatetsu Corporation, they grew into the second-largest armed medical response provider in North America, the third-largest in Europe, and the fifth-largest in Asia. Today, they’re one of Evo’s largest subsidiaries. CrashCart’s most recent innovation, DroneRx, delivers prescriptions and medical equipment directly to subscribers’ doors. Despite early problems with the drones being hacked and the medications being stolen, the program has now expanded to all markets covered by CrashCart.

BluSix [link] represents a continuation of health insurance providers stretching all the way back into the early twentieth century. The six companies that combined have longstanding relationships with their communities, their doctors, and their patients’ families. BluSix runs some of the most long-tenured medical facilities in the world, with ties to some of the most prestigious medical schools. BluSix has been caring for individuals for over 150 years with a mix of old-fashioned know-how and modern convenience. BluSix recently subcontracted its armed response program to CrashCart, choosing to focus on long-term care and traditional medical opportunities.
That’s a very polite way of saying that BluSix had a disastrous string of stock drops over the past year and cut their armed response department to keep the company from getting ripped apart by competitors. Unless a miracle happens in the next six months, the smart money is on CrashCart to consume BluSix and suddenly become a much more interesting threat to DocWagon.

剧透 - : Subscribers looking for specialized care can seek out Wuxing’s Prosperity [link] line of health service products. Their product is broken into tiers much like DocWagon’s, though they are Jade, Gold, Diamond, and Obsidian. The higher tiers of care offer exclusive healing magics and proprietary treatment options unique to Wuxing Prosperity. The company holds the second-place ranking for armed medical response providers in Asia and Europe. The Wings, Prosperity’s version of DocWagon’s innovative High Threat Response team, consist of a single magician and several spirits or elementals summoned to assist the person in need.
QuetzalCare [link] marks Aztechnology’s newest entry into the health service provider market. What once was a private insurance only available to employees has become one of the company’s largest external expansions into a new market. QuetzalCare began as one of the largest corporate insurance programs in the world and leverages that size to provide service to non-corporate subscribers. Many members of their Rapid Recovery Squads spent time as members of DocWagon’s HTR teams before joining QuetzalCare. QuetzalCare’s rapid rate of growth mirrors that of DocWagon when it first burst onto the scene over thirty years ago.

剧透 - : > When you’re the top dog in a field, you can afford to appear magnanimous. Not mentioning the competition comes off as feeling threatened. This way, DocWagon implies that you can go see what the other guys have and then come back and sign up with them because they will be found lacking. Also, it’s easy to read between the lines and catch just how backhanded NurseNancy’s “compliments” about the other guys really are.
DOCWAGON IS CURRENTLY NOT MY SERVICE PROVIDER
剧透 - : Thank you for your interest in DocWagon. We pride ourselves on being the most well-known name in modern health service providers. We offer a limited amount of services to those currently not under a service provider contract, but we encourage you to speak with a DocWagon Service Agent to find a plan with us that balances your financial ability with the coverage that you seek. The longer you go without coverage, the greater risk—physical, mental, and financial—you expose yourself to. Even if you prefer another provider, we urge you to sign up for one as soon as possible. Out-of-network patients are required to give their System Identification Number when applying for temporary services. In situations where the out-of-network patient is unable to give their System Identification Number, a temporary one may be assigned for the duration of the treatment. The patient is responsible for reconciling the numbers once the treatment is complete and payment in full has been made. DocWagon is not responsible for any legal fees incurred during the System Identification Number combination process.
> Don’t think this is a quick and easy way to get a free fake SIN. In most jurisdictions, not having a SIN is a crime, so the temporary one you get assigned flags as a criminal SIN with a lot of debt attached to it if it sticks around.

剧透 - : DocWagon personnel reserve the right to prioritize service to subscribers over out-of-network patients. We recommend our WagonWheel Outreach Program for discounted and complimentary medical services to those areas and individuals in need of health care. DocWagon is not responsible for any condition exacerbated by priority wait times, up to and including death. A previously cancelled DocWagon account may be reestablished onsite with a payment equal to a quarter of the annual subscription at the time of the service provided, plus a twenty percent activation fee. DocWagon reserves the right to escort unruly patients off its premises if they are a clear and present threat to DocWagon, its property, its personnel, or its subscribers.
> Pay attention to the order of that last sentence. That’s how most corporations view the importance of their assets. If things go south on a run, you might be better off holding a VP’s car hostage instead of his executive secretary
> Chummer, if you can afford forty-five percent of the annual contract at the clinic, you’re better off just giving the cash to the doctor on duty as a bribe to make him decide to “prioritize” you to the top of the list. > Rigger X
WagonWheel is a new outreach program that started a few months ago when DocWagon got its hands on a few dozen late-model CityMasters. It loaded them up with some medics, some bodyguards, some supplies, and sent them into the rougher parts of town. I still can’t figure out how they expect to make money on it, because it all seems too nice to not have an angle somewhere. > Butch
> If I were one of the security team, the first thing I’d do is make nice with whatever go-gang owned the turf I was in and cut them a deal on the drugs in the van for some protection. That seems like it would be a good motive for the corporation, too. Get a working relationship with a gang, build a clinic on their turf, and then get kickbacks when the boys decide to tear the neighborhood up.
> Rigger X
> Most of the medics are fresh-faced kids who still think being a doctor is about helping people. The security officers are HTR washouts. They don’t get paid much, but they get to feel good about helping people, I guess.
> What are your options if you can’t or won’t pony up for a DocWagon membership or one from a competitor? Is every hospital in Seattle owned by a health-service provider?
> Your options are very limited. You can go to one of DocWagon’s competitors (which we’ll get to in a moment), or you can get help at a public facility. There are a few hospitals and free clinics that aren’t owned by a healthservice provider, but even those are heavily subsidized and influenced by those corporations. Your best bet is to find a street doc, which I talk about elsewhere in this file.
