Why can't it ever be easy?

So I STILL haven't gotten an approval yet. Just today my doctors office (Sandra is the ins person) got the correct fax number and faxed the form over to try to get it processed. However she mentioned something to the effect of ... well I don't understand and frankly I don't feel like explaining it. Needless to say she needs me to call and verify that certain "codes" are covered. OK...well here's the deal. My infertility plan is "out of the ordinary" it is not something that anthem typically offers. It's something special they made for my company's plan. Thus when ever I called to verify exactly what they covered (IUI's, IVF's how many, restrictions) I got different answers. SO I had them write me a letter. I have the letter and hopefully it helps. However this is what I don't get. My insurance company has approved 4 IVF's with Boston IVF. Why on earth my new doctor is having troubles is beyond me! I have 9 days left and I need to get this approved and get my meds mailed to me. Luckily the place I get my meds through will next day it to me (If I order it before Friday). I think I start meds on 2/16. That gives me 6 days to get my meds mailed...plenty of time though.

Anyhow, I'm grateful for my coverage by why the heck can't it be easy? I'm trying not to let any of this get to me but today I don't feel good. I struggled to make it through work. I've had a headache off and on all day, I'm sore all over, everything I eat feels like a brick in my stomache, sweats and shakey. All I want to do is lay down but if I go to sleep now I'll wake up at 1 in the morning and not be able to go back to sleep. I might call in sick tomorrow but then again I don't want to use up all my sick and vacation time at the beginning of the year. I want to save it for when I am absolutely ILL (IE throwing up etc) or for......morning sickness. LOL...

Anyhow, I'm frustrated but I have faith this will all work out. Looks like I might be calling my previous doctors office to get the approval number...the approval number that anthem gave them when they authorized my 4th IVF (back when I was going to cycle with them again---before I switched to my new RE). I'm hoping they can transfer the approval to my new RE. No reason why they couldn't if my Re is in net work....which they are.

Ok so maybe I shouldn't complain since I have IVF coverage...but I am....

9 more days of the BCP...tomorrow I get my TSH level checked...I forgot to go in this morning.

either that or I'll blow it off if I'm not feeling good. My TSH can wait a few more days I guess.

Good luck today with your TSH. I'm betting you'll get that approval very soon!
