I am down to 9 days before my next surgery and still have not gotten the authorization! I am getting so nervous. Nothing like Tricare to take their dang-nab-it good ole sweet time. With my brain surgery I received it about a week before. Seeing Caniotomy on though rattled me. Ughhhhhhh!!
I don't know why it takes them so long. Many times I can view it online but still have to call because the authorization wasn't faxed to the provider. Then they say they faxed it but the provider still doesn't have it and you must ask them to fax again. Wishing you the best with your surgery. Lots of Prayers!
Place of Treatment: doctor's office Number of Units or Visits: 4
The surgery will be in her office in an outpatient surgical suite and go home the same day.... No hospital stay Does that mean it is automatically covered? With my brain surgery, it a far more intensive as it was 8 hour surgery and then into the Intensive Care Unit before going to a room.
I have looked online and I don't see anything new posted since my counsult in April.
@ Ga girl....i was supposed to get my referral 2 weeks ago and it STILL hasnt arrived, iw as suppose to have surgery 2 weeks ago and they didnt call me till end of this week and gave me an appt for the 23rd....Tricare is laking more than usual
Boop.. my surgery date was set for today..although this time it wasn't Tricare's fault. The one that handles the insurance claims was out on medical. She didn't get the claim in until the 9th, then took more medical leave and the " additional information" wasn't placed in the mail until two days ago. My date has been rescheduled :(
Not saying I like surgery.. but this will be my final one and my brain stuff will be completly over!
when doesnt the army f us over? ive went over a month without a cent from the bah im supposed to be getting, but im used to the army protecting their own. it took 3 times complaining about getting beat on for them to do anything and they still havent reprimanded the mean man. oh well, my girls havent even asked where he is.
i had to get a protection order just to get the f out of that place. otherwise i woulda been the next dead wife @ fort campbell. theres only so much the victims advocacy can do for you. things really need to change. i can see why people go back to the situation. and in my case, id rather be broke and struggling then risk losing my life because the army cant control their soldiers and refuse to help the victims of domestic violence.
