Did you know some hospitals may be in-network under your insurance plan, but they may also use out-0f-network physicians to do things like give you the knock out juice?
And, did you know you may get stuck with the bill?
Day 14 of my cancer journey and I only spent two hours on the phone talking to my insurance company. It’s getting better. I discovered that it’s my responsibility to make sure all doctors that work with me are in-network. If they aren’t, then I have to pay out-of-network fees which are significantly higher. According to my new friend Nicki at the insurance office, I need to ask the hospital if they use an outside group for anesthesiology. She also told me they won’t offer up that info so I need to ask.
Hmmmm, so before they give me the knock out juice I have to remember to say “Hey doc, one more question….are you in-networ…..” nigh nigh
The good news is the hospitals and surgeons are in network. Now to find out about the star of the show…..the juice man or woman cuz I’m not going down without the nigh nigh juice.
Still waiting to find out about results from my MRI. Hoping for the best. Spent a lot fo time today in prayer and reading the bible. Sooooooooo comforting. My good friend Nancy called me and prayed with me on the phone. Her daughter is also being treated for cancer. Prayed for her too. Nancy read Psalm 91 to me. ;0)
1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3 Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
