Health Care provider drops my insurance carrier
Never thought it would happen to me...I thought I had a "cadillac" insurance policy...but I was at my cardiologist this morning for a routine bi annual follow up after taking an EKG and routine blood tests last month...after signing in the receptionist informs me that they no longer accept my Culinary Union insurance, but I could opt to pay the 250 office visit fee...WTH
Don't know if I should be mad at my union for not listing my doctor as an approved provider, my doctor for not agreeing to whatever my insurance pays....or the real culprit...the looming shadow of the Affordable Care Act...
had my cardiologist for almost 4 years...good thing that one of my brother's friend/classmates is the chief of cardio thoracic at one of the new hospitals and was able to get me a referral right away.....it raised my BP up a bit but luckily I just got those prescriptions renewed last month
has anyone else experienced this yet ( your physician dropping your insurance carrier)...our insurance carrier is the second largest in the state (next to VA) and my cardiologist is a member of one of the largest Health Care providers in the state...Guess this is what we all have to look forward to if they cant repeal Obamacare when Romney gets elected
