"The king's heart is like channels of water in the hand of the Lord; He turns it wherever He wishes." Proverbs 21:1
Last night Jason and I took some time to really pray for, well...a whole lot of things, but specifically J.J. and the situation with the hospital, health insurance etc. I was thinking of the above verse .if God can change a king's heart He can surely change the heart of this insurance company and make things happen in our favor if He so wills. An hour or so later I was quilting.....and when I quilt, I think.....and it dawned on me that this whole matter with the test strips may just be a miscommunication. The insurance company has a set policy to approve 100 test strips for a diabetic. That's just their standard. If we wanted more we had to have the quantity pre-authorized. So here we've been waiting and waiting for the answer, but I believe our endo's office sent the request in for 200 thinking the insurance company already approves 100. The total then would be 300!!
I just got off the phone with the insurance company and they have the request for 200. I explained the situation and he totally understood and is sending through another pre-auth for the 300 total. So, maybe, just maybe it's all just a big miscommunication. It probably won't be as easy as this guy told me, my endo's office will probably have to resubmit everything with the 300 TOTAL and blah, blah, blah.... but at least it seems like maybe this insurance isn't as difficult as I first suspected and there is more hope that they'll approve the pump!!!
I just so wish I had trusted God sooner!! Well, even if the insurance doesn't approve the full 300 I believe I've learned what I needed to .God just wants us depending on Him, trusting Him, having a humble and contrite heart before Him. So, even though the saga continues, and we still don't have a "final answer" .there is hope, as there always is . if we trust God.
