The things they do to avoid reimbursement are so absurd I would be ROFL if I weren't so pissed. The med. insu. co. told me I had 2 operations to remove my thyroid and parathyroids. NO - it was all done at once. I think I would know if I had 2 separate operations you dingbats. 2 years and countless letters from me and drs. later, they never paid up for the parathyroid part. I gave up - couldn't stand the aggro. I got some $ for the thyroid part of the operation - none for the paras.

The dental insurance co. insists they need x-rays for my dental work. I have had 4 operations (brain, thyroid, throat) for tumors resulting from radiation I had as a child. Further x-rays are strictly contraindicated. I'm still fighting this one. If I were a psychoath (another thread) I'd bomb these places. Thieves. Criminals. I hope the people who are denying us reimbursement get leprosy and rot. slooowwwly.

Hope I didn't upset anyone with my diatribe but ha ha it felt good to vent!

I work in a hospital in medical coding, and part of my job is dealing with the stuff insurance companies try to get out of paying. I know exactly how much of a headache it is. One of my favorite parts of ACA is the requirement that an increased portion of collected premiums be spent on actual patient care (I don't remember the exact number ATM, but I believe it was a minimum of 85%).

Spiderlashes, I feel for you. I'll bet we have had similar experiences.

Corinna777, what is ACA? BTW, if I were younger, I would have taken up med. coding. I've always thought it sounded interesting (but maybe it's dull as dirt!) Do you like it?

ACA is the Affordable Care Act
also known as PPACA, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

If you were a psychopath, you'd most likely be in prison. In CA, you'd get all the treatments you need and not worry about paying for anything. I HATE dealing with insurance. HATE it.
