Insurance problems

Recommended Posts

So I was scheduled for the 27th of December but got the flu so I had to reschedule to the 8th because my doctor wouldn’t do surgery with me being so sick. Now my job has changed health insurance policies from BCBS to Aetna and there was some sort of lapse to where I’m technically covered but not in the Aetna system at all...HR is trying to help but I’m not hopeful. Pushing surgery to the 8th is pushing it because I work full time and return to RN school the 16th. So if I don’t have surgery the 8th it’s not an option until after I graduate in May. I’m starting to wonder if I should just cancel all together because I’m second guessing myself now with all of these snags. Not to mention the insurance doesn’t cover it and I’m getting a discount through the hernia program but I’m worried that if the new insurance goes through what if my out of pocket price skyrockets? Sorry just needed to vent to people who may understand because nobody around me sees my frustrations.

Oh man that sucks. Insurance issues were my biggest nightmare, having had a similar ordeal when I tried to get surgery (and didn't) five years ago. Hubby is a contractor and his contract was picked up by another outfit who switched the insurance around unexpectedly after telling us we would keep the same insurance.

This time, I even had stress dreams about the insurance calling it off at the last minute. But it went through with no issues.

Just wanted to say hang in there, and I'm so sorry you have to deal with this nonsense. I hope it works out:)
