The Surgical Saga Continues
So I called the PCP and asked about the status of the authorization. They told me it was authorized and sent to the ortho on June 2. They offered to fax it over to the ortho if I could call and get a fax number.
I called the ortho back and the same rude lady said that maybe they do have it, but that doesn’t mean it’s been processed yet. I asked for the fax number to make sure that they do have it, because I don’t have another year to wait for surgery. She reluctantly gave me the fax number.
I called the PCP back and gave them the fax number. They offered to fax it right away.
Ow, my head.
The only good thing is that I do know where the surgery will take place now. That part was authorized already.
I don’t know if it’s a good place to have surgery. Is there any such thing? But I know which place it is now, and don’t have to make further contingency plans accounting for alternative surgical locations.
