Insurance Issues: Fixed

31 12 2007

So I got my medical group changed… again. Turns out that my work has changed my insurance as of the first of January, so the medical group I had chosen was no longer allowed. But I found a new one that my dream RE is a part of and I got switched just in time. If I would have called tomorrow it would have meant another 4 weeks of waiting. So I have talked to the fertility clinic and discussed our next step. On Wednesday I will make an appointment with my new primary doctor, I will then hopefully get a referral from him, then 7-10 days after that the clinic will have the approved referral, and then I can schedule my appointment with them. The appointments at the fertility clinic are about 4 weeks out at this point, so with the waiting for a referral and the waiting for an appointment, we might not see them until March! I don’t like the sound of that at all, but it is what it is. After that comes some more tests, and then treatment. Feels like it is going to be forever until we get going on treatment. But at least we are one tiny step closer to our consultation and, ultimately, treatment. I have to keep telling myself that.

I’m not entirely sure what kind of treatment we are going for. Hubby’s results have come back fine, all my preliminary tests have come back fine, and we did manage to get pregnant once, so I’m not sure what is wrong with us. Hubby, like lots of guys, wants results. He is hesitant to go with IUI when there is another treatment out there with better odds. So I know hubby is definitely leaning towards IVF. And I’m with him on that. I have a feeling the RE will agree. The clinic we are going to is very aggressive; they even make sure to tell you that when you call about making an appointment. So I’m thinking they will recommend IVF as well.

So begins the waiting. Luckily there are a bunch of little steps along the way to keep me occupied. Fingers crossed that we get in to the RE soon!

Can you at least make an appt without the referral to cut down on your waiting time? My clinic let me do that since it was a 5 week wait to see the dr we wanted. They said as long as the referral was there by the time of the appointment, they didn’t care when I made it.
