Well, Kay called me back and let me know the ball will soon be rolling. She spoke to D (the lady at my Primary Dr.'s office) who said she is just waiting on someone from Dr. D's office to fax the confirmation to her and then the claim should be submitted. I called Dr. D and let him know and he said he would get that done today. I am glad that something can be done.
Thanks Jess for suggesting that I call Kay's supervisor and give a glowing recommendation - I will definitely do that! It gives me hope that there are people out there who are willing to listen and assist as needed. I told Kay that from now on, she is on speed dial. She also suggested that Dr. D still call and speak to the Medical DIrector and let him/her know how important this procedure is and what it entails.
Once everything is submitted, it should take about 2 weeks to get everything settled - hopefully I can still find cheap plane tickets then.
Thanks for all the prayers and comments - I felt them and they were much appreciated. I am grateful for all of you.
Where is my expected end?
