    Oh LeAnne, bless your heart! Well, congratulations and good luck on your upcoming marriage...regardless of the circumstances it should be a happy time for you. Don't let this drama over shadow it.

    That being said........if you have the fight in you, DON'T give up yet! Appeal the decision to the next higher level. File a grievance. Tell them that you were given false information (i.e. you were told your docs were covered) when you enrolled. ....bring out the words, "Insurance Commissioner"

    Too many people give up too easily because there are so many hoops to go through and there is so much paperwork to fill out--but that's how they weed out so many people that aren't willing to fight for what they deserve.

    If it were me, I'd probably just get married. ;-) But it makes me angry when I hear about the way you've been treated. Good luck, sweetie. Let me know if I can help!

      The good news is that I think I'm getting married! Yay love!
      Sapphire, I am so sorry that you're going through all of this... Eventhough I am covered with a decent insurance .. I had to stop seeing specialists because the $30 copay was killing my bank account. I started to get real upset because my Chiropractor (I highly DO NOT reccommend who is located in Southington) diagnosed me wrong - I had a gut feeling and felt pressured to quickly do something about it before I ran out of money. I got to an Osteopth, after more x-rays and an MRI (fingers crossed I don't get a big bill for someone's precert screw up) he said I have a healthy structure vs what the Chiro said that I have a back of a 100 yr old woman!! Mixing money with health issues is never fun and takes a psychological toll - I really understand...I also used to be a medical biller and had to fight tooth and nail with these insurance companies and employer to do write offs or accept patient hardship waivers.

      Anyway, I guess what I'm saying is try and hang in there and on a brighter note: congrats on getting married soon!

        Hey LeAnne,

        Sorry to hear about this awful mess. What a disaster. I hope it all gets sorted out ok when you get married -- congrats on your upcoming marriage!

        I used to joke with my FI about being with him for his benefits... he put me on there fairly early as his common law wife.
