My 3 year old is going in for grommets on Monday i checked with my health care cover in which i only joined with in june if they would cover it i gave the numbers referring to what they were doing and lady rang back and said yes you will be covered, however she didn’t check my membership properly the hospital picked up that my health insurance will not cover it as it is “pre existing” how was i to know it was pre existing we were not referred to ent until august we just thought it was ear aches not that he needed grommets so now we are up for $2,300 we could go on waiting list for public but ent said it needs to be done sooner then later ive seriously cried over this hard for families to pull that kind of money on 3 days notice, looks like credit card will be maxed out!! i am trying to dispute this with them will find outcome tomorrow but don’t like my chances aaarrhhh just needed to vent!! why do we pay cover!!!!
