Are you kidding me?

Got a call yesterday that Elsie's home phototherapy lights back in May were not covered by insurance because Blue Cross/Blue Shield's medical review committee decided they weren't "medically necessary." Even after my pediatrician faxed three different letters stating that they were absolutely necessary, and provided them with charts from the AMerican Academy of Pediatrics, they still said they weren't medically necessary.

Glad to know insurance thinks they know more that my doctor.

Here we go with another fight to get them to pay.

Don't get started on health insurance... Becky and I are ready to explode.

I'm surprised that your insurance hasn't flagged your file as "Don't Mess With this Lady." You would think they would leave you alone and just take care of the bill at this point.
