Instead of waiting around for insurance to get off their butts and send the authorization back to the hospital, I called my insurance and asked them if I could expedite the authorization for the sleep test. They had just received it around 1 PM and I was already able to get an authorization number. Ran the number down to Heart and Wellness, they recorded it and faxed it right over to the sleep lab. 15 minutes later, I have my appointment, September 15th. Sucks that it is a month away, but I’m on the cancellation list.
The stress test I was able to get sooner. My appointment is on Tuesday.
I also need to go to my second support group meeting, which is on Monday.
I can’t believe I’m almost done with the preop process.
Definitely running down the home stretch!
