Wonders Shall Never Cease

A few weeks ago, the specialist's office sent me a bill for the surgery, not factoring in the deposit I had already paid. The lady I spoke to cleared it up very efficiently. While looking over my account, she noticed that my first consult visit there had never been billed to my insurance. I told her I was pretty sure the doc was not on my plan and that they wouldn't pay. She said she would send it through just the same because you never know.

Guess what: they paid. 100% of the bill. I don't even have to pay a copayment. I'm floored. I wish I had gone to this place at the start because I have no doubt they would have gotten my HSG paid for the first try.

So now, between my overpaid deposit for the surgery and this bill, I have about $300 on account with them. How much is a basic IUI? I might have to keep that in mind the next time I can't make J's schedule line up with my ovulation!

What insurance do you have? Just curious. I want it too!
