I was getting ready to go for my medical when something told me I should check with my insurance first. With the insurance I had on my old job, I could go anywhere I wished. With the insurance I have now, they assigned me a doctor who I never met. He was part of a plan which, whenever I called with issues, they would send me to the nearest open office. So, something told me that I should call insurance to see if I 'could' go to the new clinic, and I am so glad I did.
Had I gone to my appointment without checking first, insurance would have paid nothing. I would have been charged for visit, tests, bloodwork, etc., something I certainly cannot afford at this time. So, the entire morning was spent on the phone back and forth between hospital clinic and insurance company, and I am pleased to say I have identified a 'good' doctor who I will meet on July 2nd.
