Seriously? Seriously?!

I called today to make sure that Cigna TelDr.ug had received the script. They had, but said it would be awhile.  Since I am showing peak type today, I don't necessarily have "awhile" so they were kind enough to put it on priority so it would go out today.  Then I get a call back, usually it is to set up delivery.  But this was to say that, fyi this isn't covered under your insurance.  I told them it was covered under medical if the dx isn't infertility and it is not.  It has to do with my cycle and hormones I am low on, PMS, etc.  She said the dx they were given was infertility.  That is absolutely BS b/c Dr. Hilgers never uses that term b/c he is smart enough to know that IF is a result (or symptom of the problem is maybe better way to describe), and not the cause.  He calls everything what it is. So I just left a message for the insurance nurse again, who is fabulous.  I am grateful for her to argue this on my behalf.  Grrr.

Ugh! Ugh! Ugh! Just one little word like Infertility can really mess things up, huh? Geez...in more ways than one. Hope it all gets figured out so you can get your meds.

That's so infurating. I wonder if they get bonuses for everytime they say "no." I hope they work it out in time. I'd hate to see your wrath if they don't.

And THANK YOU for taking the word verification off! I know most people like it, but it drives me nuts.

Sorry that they are being so annoying about the HCG, especially since you thought everything was all sorted out.

We got the meds! The insurance nurse took care of it that day with a call (I don't know how much of her time or effort it took) and they overnighted it. We got the meds yesterday, so glad! Now if I could only figure out when to take them-cycle is doing weird things and I am sure it is partially stress related (dissertation!)-if only I could just do one thing a time! I could so make a job out of IF! Too bad the pay is lousy-we pay them!

I hope the stress calms down so you can figure out when to take the meds!
