    Getting The Procedure Run Around Again!!!
    bpcookie posted:
    So last week I had the temp. procedure done, so next week I wanted to set up an apt. to have the real procedure done. The front desk said that I needed to get another temp. procedure done again, then see their Dr. (who is out of town until april) who will write up a request and send it to my ins. who in turns sends the authorization to the Dr. and then they schedule the fake procedure. But Ive already had two different procedures done and had to go through all of their BS policies. I wanted to skip all the BS and just go straight to the real procedure.

    Seriously, why is it so hard? All of this is costing me a lot of money, not to mention all that wasted time. Days go by, months go by and because of their stupid policies I end up suffering day after day, month after month. I want this pain GONE!!!!! ASAP.

    Im so disappointed, I realy thought I could get my procedure done next week.

    (((((Hugs))))) my dear dear Cookie. I'm so sorry that you're getting the run around by everyone. That's no fun no matter what you're trying to get done. Hope things go better for you soon. Take care.
