I am so bummed out! I just heard back from the insurance company today and they won't cover any pre-existing conditions for one full year because I don't have insurance now. (I had Medicaid while in college but that dropped as soon as I got a job and that particular job didn't offer insurance.) Kinda stupid, like if I had insurance already I wouldn't need it now. I just started a new job in August and they had a 60 day waiting period before you are even eligible for the insurance in the first place. Now I have to wait another year to have the CD and hypothyroidism covered. I guess I should be grateful that they'll cover me eventually but that doesn't help me now. Especially since I am very close to needing surgery for my stricture in the TI. It will be so hard to pay that premium every payday and get next to nothing for it. Sorry, but I just needed to whine about this for a minute.
On another note, I won't see the Charity GI doc until the 23rd regarding my SBFT results. Since the radiology doctor actually came in to take multiple pics of the strictured area himself, I am assuming the news on that will not be good. I'll let ya'll know when I find out. I was hoping my insurance would cover the surgery and I wouldn't have to have it at University Hospital. I have been getting treatment for the CD through our Free Care system and while I thank God we have it, it is certainly not that great. So that's my b#$%& session for the day. Thanks for listening.
