CT Scan Results and Medical Expenses

February 4th, 2016 at 08:19 pm

My son had his CT scan and the results are that he will definitely be needing surgery. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks. I am waiting for them to call to schedule. I don't know why I couldn't just schedule while we were there. Probably an insurance authorization was required.

I'm always saying can't we just schedule and if the authorization doesn't come through, cancel? They don't want to do that, even though I said if the insurance doesn't come through we will pay for it directly as it has to be done. The kid needs to breathe. But whatever.

I'll have $272.03 in medical bills I'll need to send out tomorrow, plus that is also the payday for the $250 for the monthly chiropractic family plan (which does not count towards our deductible since we bypass insurance and pay it directly). And the $120 for tomorrow's physical therapy, which is also out of pocket. They don't think I need it anymore, but when I don't go, I start having issues walking. I am down to 3 times a month instead of 4, though and hope it will continue to improve to 2 times a month.

I think we'll have met at least $1000 of our deductible soon.

    The insurance codes probably won't allow you to schedule versus if you had no insurance and was booking. Since you have insurance you can't pretend you don't. And people wonder why the US medical system is soo screwed. have you watched martin shkreli? I'm sorry yeah congress sucks but he sucks way more. Arrogant SOB. And we wonder why insurance is crazy expensive and insane in this country?
