Topic: HOW WE START THE WEEK
The Radiologist called me per my request last Friday. He said the Insurance
company is still denying the PET Scan and there is nothing more he can do as he can do no more without the PET. I should call the Oncologist. I let him know I would have got on this in November if his gal had not told me Nov 1st that it had been approved!
I left word for the ONC to call me.
Found a PET Scan company in Phoenix. Cost would be about 2,000.00 and they
could get Teddy in this week. Medicare would pay about 400.00 of it.
Got a call from the Radiologist office, good news, Teddy was just approved
and they are trying to get him in STAT! I have a feeling the Radman made 1
last call because of what his gal had told me about being approved!!! We
will never know, we don't care, he is in.
Called and canceled the call to the ONC.
Its not just the Cancer that is devastating, it is what the Insurance
Companies put you through!
So now, we are happy again and I will let you know the results when we get
them! And how is your day going?
