Maybe it's better

The other day we got DH's insurance "EOB" in the mail.  And gee wouldn't you know, practically NOTHING was covered.  So we may owe over $500.  What's the point of insurance then?  Now these are all for the lab services on Jan 11th.  Can't wait to see what they try to do about the renal u/s visit.  If they try to not cover that I will be raising some hell.  Can you imagine if someone actually is born with only one kidney, and their insurance wouldn't want to pay for any treatment cuz it's a "pre-existing condition?"  Well no shit.  Stupid insurance.

So maybe it's good that we won't be doing the MESA here cuz this insurance sucks ass.  But then again, it may not be any better in California.  I read online about some states that have "mandatory infertility coverage" but from what I see there's still no guarantee.

On a positive note, DH is flying back in from CA tonight.  I missed him a lot this weekend.


  1. I hope he gets into UCLA! I'm glad everything went well. Too bad we had such crappy weather on Sat. It normally isn't rainy here.

    Insurance coverage always amazes me. The companies are so dumb! I just found out from B's doctor that because of changing in how they are coding procedures, some of the expense is reimbursed under PPO plans, so we are keeping our fingers crossed.

    Good luck!

  2. Yeah our state apparently has "mandatory IF coverage" but it doesn't seem to mean sh*t.
