Good NEWS!!! 12/28

Hello ALL! So much going on, but first, I hope you all had a very blessed and Merry Christmas with the ones you love. πŸ’šπŸŽ„πŸ™ Mine was wonderful, for the most part. Mom was so so sad when we saw her on Christmas Eve and it just broke my heart. It’s so so hard. But at the same time, I guess it’s good she’s aware enough to be sad. So I’m trying to find the positive in the negative. Christmas morning, I went in alone because the kids were sick and she seemed a little better. Still down. But again, who could blame her. Didn’t want to leave her, but had to. Its very difficult, and the holidays make it a LOT worse. But we all survived and I’m glad the holidays are over. Soon enough she will be in her own home! The contractors are busting their butts! The bathroom is completely gutted! The back door is being cut out. The oil pipes were move. They are getting ready to pour the front porch. All this in 3 days! I’m ecstatic!! I just can’t wait to see it all done! Can’t wait to show Mom. Ahhhh!! I just get excited πŸ˜… Brent and I spent the last couple days house hunting! Put an offer on a home so fingers crossed we get it! I’m waiting by the phone for the call on pins and needles!! And now for the great news! Aetna! Finally! Came! Through!!!!!!!! I just got myself all worked up in the car because Phoebe called me like 5 times for there money in the last 2 days. So I was fired up and left our lady a message and sent an email and she called me back right away! She told ME that Aetna overturned a denial and approved an additional 37 days at PHOEBE! Are you KIDDING ME!! Finally! I was so excited! Cried. Told her I loved her. She was so happy. I was so happy. She said she couldn’t wait to tell me. It was just great! All of our hard work! Finally starting to PAY OFF!! I’m just over the moon. The house. Now this! 6 months of tears, sleepless nights, feeling like I was battling the whole world, and it’s all going to be ok. She said I should also dispute the upcoming denial and see what happens! Will do πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜ƒ and FINALLY! I’m gonna be an Auntie again! It’s wasn’t me that was pregnant, but Jenny! A little baby will be arriving in late July. They are very excited – we all are!! Oh how I love the happy posts. Xoxo 2013 is gonna kick butt.

    DANA, DANA, DANA—–ONE thing we have learned when working with insurance companies and especially medicare—-ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS, APPEAL ANY DENIAL!!!!!!!!! ALWAYS—-don’t pay anything until you’ve appealed it —never, never, never pay until you have three denials. Yes, it means lots of letter writing, but those people making decisions are just clerks that have been hired to just send a denial for every request . They are not the professional medical personal that reviews any appeal. Scott was never denied—in the end—- anything because we always appealed all their denials. Sometimes it took two appeals, but we sent as many as we could. We even went to hearings. We had to. I mean, who would deny a guy a new seat cushion for a wheelchair because his old one burst!! Medicare. But we appealed it and sure enough, he has a new cushion —but it took an appeal. I guess this would have been helpful soon, but I just wasn’t thinking.

    Things will get better. Because we’re always praying for you all. AND congratulate DUSTIN AND HIS WIFE for us. Great news to hear!!!!

    God Bless,

    Stephanie

      Yes! I believe I just learned that lesson πŸ‘ as that is what I’ve spent a good part of my days doing! Finally paid off, and will continue to do so! It seems protocol to deny, to weed out the people who don’t want to put forth the effort to get what they deserve. I will congratulate them for you! They are very happy πŸ’“ Thanks for the pointers.
