    Interesting point you have there. That sure would be nice topic to be brought up during the DAN conference. Maybe some guys/gals who are going can inquire about this.

    my 2 cents,

    yo

    Unfortunatly this has happend before to us here in Mexico, Playa del Carmen. Some time ago ( a year or two ) we where notified by the operator of the chamber that they will not longer accept DAN insurance but that we had to pay. I then heard it was due to an issue between DAN and the chamber, payments and policy.

    Hyperbaric chambers do at times quite some unnececcary rides to questionable divers in order to charge the insurance and making money. Big Buiz !!

    As this happend some years back to us I went to DEMA and talked to the DAN staff on the booth and they where saying basicly to shut up and not to badmouth DAN and it system, that it was unthinkable such thing was happening.

    So was I believeing it was unthinkable that chambers flying the DAN banner where not accepting DAN insurance, forcing stricken divers to come up with a lot of green = $ 1000 usd or a credit card before letting them into the chamber.

    I found it back then to be outragous for a insureer with such public presence to act like that and not be able to control the local chambers, to play dumb and be the shit in the pond.

    We here in Playa have since then experienced a change in ownership of the chamber and things have changed , as I hear. I personally as well as my store are very sceptiacal about the system and do not pupport our local chamber.

    I feel very sour and sorry about this. Apparently money talks ....

I'm very disappointed that DAN refuses to cover an injury that is so relevant to our CCR / constant PPO2 diving.
    Your Hyperbaric oxygen induced myopia should resolve on it's own after diving. it is usually temporary, that is probably the real reason behind their denial

    I'm guessing Genesis has had many a "holly crusade" in the 6.5 years since his post. These responses to ancient threads can get pretty funny at times. Although there was one recently asking what happened to the Apoc.

    I love it when new users come on, search around on topics, then reply to a thread without checking how old it is.

    Critidoc, I suspect that 6 years has indeed allowed his myopia to resolve... only to be replaced by presbyopia given his current age...

    I don't think I've read many threads here for two years. I love that I can log in after that spell and there is an ancient DAN sucks thread and a GUE/George Irvine thread at the top of the list. Things are right with the universe.
