Well people...I'm about 3 steps closer to getting my surgery!
Last Friday, I was approved by TriCare for my procedure!!! I will have to cover 20% of the surgery and around $25 for the hospital stay, but I was expecting that. I'm not sure of the complete cost yet, but I'm not terribly concerned about it just yet.
So last week involved a lot of phone calls to TriCare to make sure my doctor's office got a copy of my approval letter. This morning, I got an email from the lovely insurance specialist from Dr. Diaz's (my surgeon) office letting me know she got my approval letter! She said she will be passing my chart on to the scheduling department and they would be getting a hold of me in another 2-3 weeks (ugh!). I'm staying positive that the steps are getting done, but 2-3 WEEKS! GEEZ!!! I was hoping to have the actual surgery in 2-3 weeks! Oh well, I won't push my luck! I know I am very fortunate as it is that I was approved so quickly.
I was told they will have a surgery date when they call me! Here's hoping I will get the call in 2 weeks (or less) and not 3! Fingers crossed! I'm also hoping to have some more, totally unrelated, good news next week as well, but I'm not going to jinx it so I'm keeping mum until I know for sure! Fingers crossed for that too!
I'm off now to enjoy the rest of this beautiful day!
