I have private insurance on top of my regular health insurance. Last week's tube change was done at the private hospital where my gi doc works at. Yesterday, I received a letter from my insurance company telling me that they would not pay for my stay there, as this hospital stay was required due to a metabolic disorder.
I almost couldn't believe it when I read it. Since when is gastroparesis considered to be a metabolic disorder? I called my caseworker at the insurance company this morning, and she was not very friendly, but she said she would give my case to the insurance doc again and have it reviewed.
I know they will have to pay, and my Dad is a lawyer and will help me out, but still it mad me really angry and frustrated.
