I was checking my insurance claims this morning online and noticed that my RE's office submitted a claim yesterday for my ultrasound appointment from March 8th.
This was the infamous appointment where we were told there was no baby. That there was no hope. That it was over. But they were wrong. An OB found it just two hours later.
I have no idea why they waited so long to submit this claim.
I just wrote a frustrated email to their billing person to cancel the claim ASAP and I'm going to make sure that neither I nor my insurance will be paying them for that day. Can you tell this is a bit of a sensitive topic for me?
And in other news....
We were so blessed earlier this year to learn that we have a $10k lifetime infertility benefit after never having any coverage in the past. I definitely do not take that for granted. But to add insult to injury, I just learned that our insurance pre-authorization for our upcoming embryo transfer has been denied!!! I could cry. Their rationale is that I am not eligible because I haven't proven that I'm unable to achieve pregnancy after one year of unprotected sex. What in the world do they want as proof of that?!
And the other reason is that I am supposed to attempt three IUIs prior to attempting our FET.
We already tried IUI, and we all knew it wouldn't work even when we did it. I'm asking my RE to appeal immediately with whatever proof they can supply. More stress to add to my already maxed out self. And to add to my current emotional condition, I just learned that my sister in law is pregnant and my cousin gave birth yesterday. It's not like they do it to hurt us. I'm happy for them. But it hurts. I just want to crawl into a hole right now. Why does this have to be so hard for us and seemingly so easy for everyone else?
Cue tears of frustration.
