First of all, a
Guess who got an $83 bill for blood work ran in December, even though she shouldn't have owed a dime? This girl! I'm a little peeved.
I called my new insurance and it works the same with them. Any lab work ran through the "hospital" isn't going to fall under that 100% coverage. So I have to let all my doctors know they either have to give me a lab slip for another lab, or I'm going to find another doctor. V's pediatrician's office is already on my short list because they are giving me a really hard time about just giving me a damn lab slip. They want me to just go to their lab... you know, the one they own. Ahahahah, no. I'll find another doctor first. This also means I now have to drive 30 minutes (to the closest Labcorp) for any and all blood work. I can live with that, but it frustrates me. The lab here was 5 minutes away, getting it done in my PCPs office was even better since I was already there... but I'm going to do what I have to.
I know it's not that bad. I'm being whiny. Wah wah wah- I'm just really annoyed. And I'm frustrated that I got billed for this without knowing it was going to be ran different. My PCP ran my stuff through Labcorp in July, then suddenly in December they started using the local lab again? Mmmhmmm. Yeah, that doesn't seem weird. at. all.
Aside from that I asked about progesterone coverage. I need pre-authorization for PIO (coverage would be 25%) or Crinone ($70 a month, which isn't that bad). I think it's ridiculous that I'll need pre-authorization though. Which could get denied, and would take 3 days to go through. These are the two options we know would be best. I'd prefer Crinone, but if I start bleeding I'll have no option but to switch to PIO.
For generic Prometrium (I didn't know there was such a thing, the lady told me it's just called 'progesterone') it's $40- BUT I don't know if there's a limit on that for dose, or how much they consider a months worth. No clue about pharmamay compound progesterone coverage, but it doesn't look good.
So that was both enlightening and frustrating.
I'm still super sick and exhausted. I haven't been exercising, but I did make chocolate chip cookies yesterday. That was probably a mistake. On that note, I'm going to call it a day. I'll probably post about my weigh-in over the weekend.
Oh, and I'm like 9dpo now. Not very hopeful with how sick I've been, but we'll see. I'll probably start testing over the weekend since I have a bunch of cheap tests that came with my OPKs.
