It's been a while since I wrote about our insurance situation and wanted to provide a quick update. I have been working very diligently each week with the insurance company to see what can be done about the outrageous bills we are getting and anticipate in the future. I have to say Great West, well actually our Customer Service Rep. Bethany has been great. It's funny (not funny ha ha, just funny) how once a significant amount of LARGE bills start to rack up the insurance company assigns you a dedicated customer service rep. It's actually been very helpful and we are very grateful for her help. She has been actively working with Annabelle's non-contracted doctors (two in particular) attempting to get contracts agreed to, back dated to the date of Annabelle's birth and signed. As of today an agreement has not been reached but I am feeling encouraged and was advised to check back next Thursday. Although they will not be "regular" in-network contracts they should be way better than what is being covered for these doctors right now. So I am choosing NOT to get completely thrown for a loop regarding the crazy bills were are getting.
So, nothing really new but I am feeling encouraged. Also, we were able to confirm that her Orthopedist and her Urologist (both super critical doctors) that she saw two weeks ago are considered contracted doctors. This was GREAT news!! I will update again with the final news.
