Stem Cell Transplant - I Need Your Good Thoughts

25 posts in this topic

Tangie asked me... so I'm accepted, now what?

Good question.

 

The answer is: wait. Hahhaha. They have to process my insurnace and write a letter to my insurances to see if they will cover the procedure. The insurance lady said they cover all or nothing.

 

This can take some time especially since my primary insurance is suspended because they rejected my claim pending further proof of my condition. I faxed the proof but it takes 24-hours blah, blah blah... (silly insurance always takes forever) but I have a second insurance so who knows how it will all work out... but it always does!

 

Basically once we get money we can start the actual process.

 

Here's to no problems with paperwork or my work-up!!!

Hi Peanut:

 

I want to hear all about it and it seems like more people also want to hear it.

When you have time, sit down and write your story.

 

Wishing you a good day,

Hey friends,

Here's the update:

 

Last week I was told me this week I'd get an answer and this week they're telling me the insurance company is leaning toward yes, but can't answer for sure till they come up with a money figure. So I can hope for an answer regarding the approval of my stem cell transplant Monday or Tuesday.

 

Well here's to hoping...

Peanut,

 

I'm hoping really hard that the insurance company will see the light and you'll get into the Northwestern program quick, quick, quick.

 

Hoping for good news,

Good luck, Peanut!

I have been a little out of the loop lately and didn't realize you were even being considered for a stem cell transplant! I, too, would like to hear the whole story any time you feel like writing it
