Ever Have One of THOSE Mornings!!!!!Warning this is long!!!!! and There are lots of misspelling becaue I am just GGGRRRRR
Well I am having one of them today. GGGRRRRRRR
Jedd had to be a the ENT at 9:15 hard but doable (is that a word??)
At breakfast he decides to vomit, I seriously do NOT have time to re-feed him so I give him a little extra heavy cream and call it a meal...
In the car, he's fine I brought the DVD so he could watch something adn NOT puke in the car. Thank heavens it worked.
I can't fid the ENTs office thye ahve taken theri lovely little sign donw so here I am on a BUSY BLVD trying to find their office. I pass the entire road 3 times. On my fourth pass I call to ask the name of the street since the sign seems to be missing.
She tells me and then says really SNOTTY, well since it sounds liek you're gona be late let's reshcedule you!!! NO DON"T DO THAT!!!!! I practically EYLL at her.... I told her I have spent enough gas money already DO NOT DO THAT!! I'll be there and I hung up on her.
My day only gets better when I get there.(being sarcastic)
I am told by the check in lady that my referral has cancelled!!!!! I said all Jedd's other DR call and do that for me do you do that....You guessed it, NOPE.
So now I am stading in front of her on teh phone withte PCP trying to get a stupid referral pushed through. They tell me sure we'll get it faxed ASAP. I LOVE my peds office...
Then the checkin lady tells me I owe a copay...UUUMMM This is a follow up from surgery I DONOT owe a copay. She says that I do so owe a $40 copay.
I said If they code it as a follow up NO I WON'T!!!!! Seh says I'll have to talk to the DR about that.
We get called back and then I mention it to the nurse and the DR walks in as we are talking about it so I ask him. He says NOPE you owe a copay.
I told him that all the othere surgical follow us are free. I explain to him it's not just ONE dept either Jedd has seen 3 other dept sfro surgical follow up s and they are coded for follow up and are free.
He says are they CHKD Dr.???? I said yes, he says that's why we DON'T DO THAT!!!!!
So I am leaving and you guessed it, the check OUT girl asks for my copay. I said IF the billing person codes this visit correctly I WILL NOT GET CHARGED!!!!!!
She has me sign a promissary note saying I woudl pay if the insurance co. requires a copay.
So basically I'll recieve a bill for the visit.
This all boils donw to the ENT wanting to make $$$$. If he charges for a follow up visit he gets paid SQUAT for the visit. BUT if he charges it a reg. ENT visit he gets paid by the ins. co n and he gets a copay from me.
I scheduled a follow up with them in 6 months but I will be calling to cancel it....
I mean really doens JEdd need to be followed up that much for ear tube surgery.
His ped. can check them and hehas passed BOTH hearing test on each visit post op. I doubt anything is going to happen from ehre on out.
OH and through all fo this I am having to rush back here to home because EI will be here ASAP for Jedd's 6 month review!!!!
I jsut want to crawl back in bed...... if you made it this far you are a saint and thanks for listen to my &*itching....
OH BTW I lost about 3 pounds on the scale this morning, so I thought it would be a VERY GOOD DAY!!!! I was wrong...... Oh and the DOG ate the banana bread I had wrapped up on the counter while I was gone as well....
And Jedd keeps eatign the dog's food out of her bowl...well, he keeps trying to eat it, if he actuallyate it I woudl be highly impressed.....
