Insurance Sucks!!

I have my follow up MRI scheduled for Wednesday (which is 2 days away).  I received a phone call today from the receptionist at my docs office saying insurance denied it, and it is currently in physician review.  The insurance company doesn’t want to pay for another MRI of the same thing.  The problem is, I came to find out that the last one was done wrong.  The imaging center did a MRI of the correct area, but did not focus on the testicles.  I remember it clearly written on the script, a pelvic MRI with a diagnosis of a testicular mass.  My doc is currently going back and forth with the imaging center to try and get them to do it over at their cost since insurance won’t cover it.  I guess we’ll just have to wait and see, I wasn’t looking forward to it anyway!!
