In regards to the insurance, it, of course, is a billing issue. The hospital, when it submitted the information to receive a pre-authorization for my appointments, specified a doctor. However, I wasn't seen by that doctor during my appointments (thus far). Therefore, when they submitted the billing, they said which doctor I had seen, which of course wasn't the doctor who was pre-authorized, so TriCare isn't paying for the non-pre-authorized doctor's office fees. GRR! So I thanked the TriCare claims lady for explaining to me, and then I called Memorial. Still waiting to hear back from them. Which should be fun, because this bill was only for one visit, the first one, and on the three visits I've had since then, I also haven't seen the doctor who was specified in the pre-authorization paperwork, so I imagine I get to deal with this quite a bit over the next couple of months. Great. Great, great, great!
