Hi there Indigo,
I have the same insurance as you and actually I had to postpone a capsule endoscopy I had scheduled for yesterday for next Tuesday because they were dragging their feet on pre-authorizing the procedure. With that being said even with all of the roadblocks they throw in the way the insurance company eventually approves what is needed. Often times it just takes a savvy doctor or office staff to reword the prescription or orders so that it will get their approval.
Good luck with the remicade...
Thanks for your replies!
Gracie, I had the very same issue before my small capsule was done a few months ago!! Thank goodness they approved it and I was able to get the procedure done!
I get nervous because my Serology 7 test was not covered and I worry about other things not getting covered that I might need.
Great point though, Linjade. I am very thankful I have insurance. Just disappointed I ended up with such a dang expensive disease!
