So I go to my doc appt last week and I go to the window to check in and the lady says "That will be $76 for today's visit. How would you like to pay?" I said I'm thru the MAPP program (financial aid program thru the hospital). She said that they no longer accepted MAPP. I was there to get blood work results. Well I told her I didn't have any money and she said "I'm sorry there's nothing we can do except reschedule the appt." I said there's no need I won't have it then either. I asked her if they would allow me to have my results and she left the desk and came back with my results. Then I left.
The next day I got on the phone with Duke Medicine to see what I needed to do to get an appt. They said they would need my chart faxed to them. So I called my doctors back and asked them to fax over a referral to Duke and they did. about a week later I called to see if they received the referral and they did. The woman gladly gave me an appt date and said I needed to call and talk to the financial coordinator. So I did and first of all I was set up with the wrong doctor. So that got fixed. I got my appt and was so happy. Well this morning I get a phone call and it was Duke. She said "Ma'am I'm sorry to have to tell you this but the doctor has denied your referral." I instantly shut down and had a panic attack. They were my only hopes n getting better.
So now I'm at a dead end. Does any one have any suggestions as to what I could try next?
All I wanna do is get better!!!!!
