Hey PaLady....just wanted to say hi. I haven't been around much but would love to chat a bit...
Retired, I'm so glad to hear your appointment went so well and that you actually like your doctor. That is always a big plus!
You stated that your insurance company denied the nerve ablation after the fact. I was scheduled for mine in March but had to reschedule it for April 12th due to my husbands work schedule, I want him there for it. The PM office asked me to sign a waiver because a pre-cert hadn't been completed yet. I told them that I didn't want to have the procedure until the pre-cert was received. Hopefully it will be completed before my appt. I hope you didn't get stuck with the entire cost of the procedure.
My PM has never done a drug test on me though it is stated in my contract that they may do so. I must have not set off any signals as a seeker.
