Journey to Baha

Progress (ish)

Posted on: April 13, 2009

Time for a status update:

There is nothing to update.

There, that was easy. It’s not as simple as all that, though. I was getting impatient, so I called the Surgical Coordinator to check our progress. While she hedged adamantly that these are only estimates and there is absolutely nothing within her power to keep to this timetable, it was nice to get a general idea of how much longer we’ll probably be waiting. Apparently, we are right on schedule and things should be headed to the insurance company for approval soon (hopefully within the next couple weeks).

  1. It takes 2-3 months for the Surgical Coordinator to receive the full workup and reports from the Audiology department. (this is where we are now)
  2. It then takes another 2-3 months to receive insurance approval from most insurers.

I was hoping the hospital would be able to do things a little quicker on their end, but overall I want it done right so we can hopefully be approved on the first try and not have to apeal. It’s nice to have something to look forward to and she’s promised to call and let me know when it goes to the insurance for approval.
