So. I'm here at work, after almost a week off. I didn't take Monday off, but that was because we had our company outing in the afternoon - so it wasn't really work. Including being back at work - I'm back to my 'follow up' calls that I make - you know the type - checking up on this your ordered and haven't received, making vet appointments, and hell, following up on the damn IVF APPROVAL!??!?!
The insurance lady called me back a mere5 hours after I left my message (which is lightening fast for this office) and told me that the letter was faxed on July 5th. So it could take up to 3 weeks, maybe even 4 or 5. Um.... I was told you faxed it on June 29th? And now it's not a max of 3 weeks but FOUR OR FIVE!
I know it has been said a million times, but it's the waiting with all this IVF shit that sucks the most. It was my understanding that the doc's protest letter was filed on the 29th... making today the day that I would hear (at the latest). But, no. Not only did the letter not get filed when I thought, but now the turn around time could be even longer!? If it's 5 weeks... I could actually still keep on track for starting Lupron in August. AF is due this upcoming Friday. CD 21 would be the 17th. So even if I find out on the 9th (that is 5 weeks), maybe, just maybe - I can finally get this freaking IVF show on the road.
Of course, I need to travel for work the entire week of the 13th. I thought that was a perfectly safe week to travel. And now, I may need to do put off the 'pre-IVF' appointment until that week because of the stupid insurance stuff.
Thank god I'm going for a second opinion on August 7th. I really getting fed up with this crap.
