Today I was looking over my bills from CCRM and trying to figure out what needs to be submitted to my insurance company for reimbursement. In further looking and after calling my insurance company to confirm, my insurance company did not and will not pay for anything we had done at CCRM. Not even the hysteroscopy or u/s. I am not completely surprised, just p*ssed.
The insurance company helps to pay for those who are alcoholics and need to go to treatment and for those who are trying to quit smoking, which are lifestyle choices (term used by the insurance company). I did not choose infertility...it chose me. Aren't I the lucky one?
So, while we paid over $30,000 in out of pocket expenses last year to bring a baby into our loving home, people went to AA and quit smoking and didn't pay a dime. Now, before everyone gets upset, I am NOT saying that the insurance company shouldn't pay for AA and smoking cessation. What I am saying is that in addition to covering medical treatment for lifestyle choices, IF treatments should also be covered by ALL insurance companies under EVERY plan.
On a happier note: I should be getting my official cycle calendar later today or tomorrow. We had some conflicts with the dates that we were trying to figure out so it has taken a couple of days to figure out. Woohoo!
