I've spent the past couple of days dealing with our insurance company, the hospital, and bank!! UGH!!! It doesn't make my mood cheery that's for sure!! We've never had anything major happen medically in our family...besides babies, miscarriages, broken toes, ear infections, etc. So to have to deal with not only diabetes, but the insurance and the medical entities wanting their money is very draining.
We are still fighting to have the insurance pay for the test strips. Our Endo prescribed 300/mo. but the insurance only wants to pay for 100. They cost us $1/strip. And we are finding that we do go through close to the prescribed amount each month. We've had to contact both our insurance and our clinic to follow up. Just amounts to a lot of time on the phone. I found out yesterday that the insurance does have the information they need now, but it's in review!! We are so praying that they approve the test strips.
We finally got the hospital bill yesterday as well. I called this morning to set up payments, and was given a ridiculously high amount.....for us right now, anyway....the lady was snippy....not a great way to begin my Saturday!!
