Getting over an underbite

blogging my way through double jaw surgery

Working through options

I’m feeling better than I did last week this time. Not that the situation has improved, I’m just dealing with it better. Here’s what I’m doing:

  • The surgeon is filing an appeal with the insurance but it is doubtful it will be approved.
  • My husband tried talking to his HR dept, which directed him to his Benefits dept, which directed him back to the insurance company. Full circle, dead end.
  • I’m checking into my work’s insurance for next year (instead of my husband’s), but I don’t think they cover it either.  And that wouldn’t start til January if it did.
  • We got a letter from the surgeon breaking down the costs if we paid out of pocket. While it is less than I expected, still more than I want to pay.
  • Praying about it too, mostly to handle this well and to figure out what to do next.

In the meantime I have another ortho appt in 5 weeks. I’ll just keep going for now, to do those last little tweaks.
