News Flash!

First off, Bonnie and Drazil, thank you so much for the comfort and for firing me up. I officially feel better now. I just got off the phone with the surgical coordinator. She assured me that everything had been sent in to the insurance company and that she had gotten the March 8 date too. She said before she called me, she called BCBS again and was unable to speak to anyone in the appeals department, but she assured me she was on top of things, equally as frustrated as me and said she was going to call them back on Monday.
She called me back a total of 3 times this evening and reassured me that she had followed up on everything and that she would get answers for me. I felt so much better after I talked to her, she was very sweet.
I'm just so ready to know. Thank you again for your support. Bonnie, I can't believe you even sent me the link to the insurance commissioner, awesome.
Ya'll have a great weekend. And thanks for helping me cut my pity party short.
Hugs,
Tess

You're welcome - you deserve this and I know it will happen! I agree with Bonnie - pity party just became pissed off party! You go girl.

I'm sorry! I'm glad the woman called you back and is trying to work with you. I don't think people understand just how emotional this is unless they're going through it. I freaked out when my first psych eval got cancelled. I know that this will be worked out on Monday. Keep breathing through it!

And if you need to punch a pillow!

Just getting caught up. It must be tough when it feels like you're doing it all alone but the surgical coordinator sounds like she's on top of things and is in your corner. I know that all of your persistence and follow up will be worth it.

Enjoy your weekend!
