Are You Serious????????????

I am beyond annoyed right now. Beyond frustrated. I am P.I.S.S.E.D.
D, at my primary Dr.'s office has been saying she has been having a hard time getting N. at Dr. D.'s office. Well, I called and got her within 24 hours. N. said she already gave the information to D., but if she wants it again, she will gladly fax it over. N. also said that D mentioned to her that she needed a letter saying it is a medically necessary procedure. Now I am no idiot, I said to N., that doing that is not feasible due to the fact that I am not a patient of Dr. D. He has never seen me throughout any of my pregnancies. She agreed.

I called back D., and relayed the message to her. I also asked her about Dr. D. having to write a letter saying that the procedure is medically necessary. She said yes, she did say that. I told her that there is no way Dr. D., could do that as he is not my Dr. I have never seen him nor has he ever treated me. Her response? "oh. Well, then when she faxes the paper over I will submit it to the insurance".
Needless to say, I am not convinced she is doing an adequete job, and I am very nervous it is going to get denied, because of someone so incompetent. I will definitely be calling her back on Monday to ensure that she submitted the claim.

Ladies, please pray that this all works out and I stay sane and saved at the same time, and not go off on anyone.

Where is my expected end?


  1. Does your PCP have all of your ob records during your pregnancy and delivery? If not, make sure your ob's office gets all of that to your PCP so they can send that to the insurance company to show why its medically necessary that you have the TAC done. You will want to have your PCP include a letter if he/she hasn't already done show explaining why you need to see Dr. D instead of someone in network. Just some suggestions. I am praying for you. *huge Hugs*

  2. I can only imagine how frustrating this all is for you! I will be praying!!!

  3. Oh my gosh!! This is why I dislike insurance companies. I don't think they know what they're doing half the time!!! I really hope that they don't deny it!

  4. Ugh, I wish these people would just get their act together!!!

    Praying that this all starts to move in the right direction and that you don't lose your mind in the process...((Hugs))
