BCBSTX messed up



Recommended Posts

I'm really just venting because bcbs tried to give me a heart attack. Just a little background, my surgery was pre-approved. Both my surgeon and the hospital were named in the approval letter. I got a notice a claim was finalized. They denied payment on the $82,000 hospital bill. I called to find out wtf happened. The eob said it was only covered if I went to a center of excellence. My hospital IS a center of excellence. She put me on hold and looked it up. It should have been paid. They messed up. Now it has to be manually redone and it will take about a month. I seriously almost had a panic attack. Thank goodness they are fixing it. I won't really be truly OK until it's actually done and paid.

I’m sorry! This sounds like a absolute mess. I’ve had bad luck with BCBSTX as well, but finally got approved.

I hope BCBS admitted their manifest sins, recanted their evilness and you've been able to move,on with your life. Things going better for you @ Trixie82?

This is happens all the time unfortunately. I guarantee it was a software issue somewhere. It's what they get for trying to replace all our jobs with automation.

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....

      1 month and 4 days from surgery and not losing. Actually have gained a couple pounds. Can't figure out what I am doing incorrectly. Have an appointment in a couple weeks hopefully she can sort me out. I don't know if I am not eating enough, not drinking enough, not walking enough. I get 60g of protein min a day, most days more. I have lost only 12 pounds since my surgery and I honestly thought I would be further along then this. Feeling regretful the last couple of weeks and I know it's early on but I feel like my honeymoon is being wasted.

      Hey ya'll. I've been trying to get more protein in my diet. I started tracking what I ate this week and I like it so far. It sort of feels like a game. I've also been trying to eat alot slower. That helps.  My coworker who hasn't seen me in a week said I was slimmer. That made me feel good! lol Tomorrow, I have 3 appointments. I have my weight management, my psych and my visit to my primary care. They recently changed my primary care doctor so I'm looking forward to meeting this new person. Tomorrow is a big deal for me. I promised my nutritionist that I'd lose 3 pounds the next time she saw me. (I don't know why I said that) She told me she believed me because of the determination in my voice. idk ya'll. This whole process is scary. I'm scared of starting over. Last month, I weighed 205.5 LETS SEE how much I weigh in at tomorrow. Send positive vibes ❤️
