Last week, I did some checking on what my insurance would cover. I knew that my Ant..hem B.lue Cr.os.s did not cover infertility. Dr. D's staff told me it was my responsibility to find out if the hormone testing was covered. After I got off that call, I hesitated for a couple minutes thinking, "I don't want to call the insurance co!" I did make the call and gingerly danced around the tests Dr. D prescribed. The woman said, "Oh, you're doing a hormone profile. Let's see what's covered because infertility can be really tricky here." Oh, great.
Ins. Girl - "Ovarian dysfunction. Yes, that's covered. What are you trying to have a baby?"
Me - "No."
Ins. Girl - "Oh, are you just not feeling well?" [Tone was not caring but more snooping]
Me - "I feel fine."
Turns out that my favorite hospital is renegotiating their contract with my insurance so their lab might not be covered post today (July 1.) Got to check that. Actually, I should do that now.
