I should call it “Ticked Part Two.” I found out today that a new appointment was made for me, but no one told me. You’re probably wondering how I found out.
I got an email from the biologic nurse saying that she heard I made a new appointment for April 23 at 11:30. WHAT?! I had done no such thing.
I emailed back and told her it was news to me. I hadn’t made any new appointment. Poor nurse got a little taste of my frustration. I did apologize to her after.
The nurse was emailing to tell me to be at my appointment a half hour early to see her first. That takes me right back to “What part of I can’t make it that early, don’t people get?!”
I called the Ins. Co. told them I just can’t do these 10 hour trips while trying to deal with gut issues. The Ins. Co. told me that they only need me to make one trip and that it doesn’t have to be in three months or every three months. Sigh…
The Dr.’s office is telling me that the Ins. Co. requires these trips every three months.
I asked the Ins. Co. to then talk to my Dr.’s office to get this shit straightened out.
Now enter a third party..
The Enbrel Co.
The Ins. Co. will call the Enbrel lady, and have her contact my Dr. about this mess…
Wonder how that’s going to go.
Too many parties, planning my life without involving me.
The Patient. The very sick patient.
Anyway, I’m awaiting a call back from both the Dr.’s office and the Ins. Co. I’ll probably also hear from the Enbrel Co. And you know what?
The will all likely call while I’m trying to sleep. They always do.
Anyway, it will be worth it if I can cut down on the amount of trips I need to take and get a later time to be there. I’ll be grateful for that. I am believe it or not grateful that I have coverage. I need to remember the good. I’m just overwhelmed and weary.
It would however be nice if I could be included in my own life plans..
Oh and I found out that the Ins. Co. needs to extend my time they cover my Enbrel because I started in Dec. rather then in Oct. I’m only approved until April. I need until June starting late on it. I didn’t know starting late would cause that issue.
I’m sorry I’m cranky but I warned everyone that this is the place that I get my bitching out.
Can we find a cure already?!
How is your week going?
