My surgeon can beat up your claims agent!

Made my appointment on time today.  Got to see the doc and then waited and waited and waited for them to call me back for a CTA.  It's a CT scan and angiogram in one.  When I realized it had been over an hour I asked at the front desk if I had been forgotten.  TURNS OUT that United Health Care was not approving the scan.  They were asking for the same info 3 times and the like.  I called got someone and he gave me a number and directions and said if the doc or NP or PA would call they could get that straightened out. 

Between surgeries the doc tried and got a fax line and then a ring with no answer.  I was mad so I called back and was chewing on someone's (r)ear and demanding to talk to someone that knew what was what.  Just then out on the sidewalk in front of the AZ Heart Institute was Dr. Deidrich.  I told the girl on the phone,  "I have the cardiovascular surgeon standing her will you talk with him?"  This scared the girl and she insisted I would be transferred to someone that COULD talk to a doctor.  Someone came on the line, and the Doc proceeded to explain what he wanted and why.  Then HE got transferred.  He got to listen to music for a bit and then a second person answered.  He went through all of it again.  Then he got transferred, AGAIN.  Third time being the charm the fellow gave him 3 "notification" numbers.  That means authorizations.  I told this to the lady doing the ekg a bit later and she said, "You mean he got angry and told someone to do it"  NOPE right on the sidewalk in the Phoenix sunshine Dr. Ted Detreitch argued on my behalf with an insurance person.

After all the tests, he showed me the images they got from the CT.  Amazing pictures.  It's very clear why I am having a blood flow problem.  My aorta goes from a width of 20 to 8 back to 20.  The plan is to do a subclavical bypass.  THEN put a stent and two stent grafts in my aorta.  The artery that goes to my left arm would be blocked by the stent so we need to do the bypass.  I asked if they could still do that without opening my chest and before the surgeon could answer the Doc showing the pictures turned to me and said, "Almost, this man can work miracles"

They are going to make a small incision near my collar bone and do the by pass then do two stent grafts and a stent.  This should fix all my current problems and I shouldn't need any more heart work for 10 years or more.  THEN I will be needing a heart valve.

Stay tuned.  I go to the hospital Wed at 5 A.M.  Procedure is scheduled for 7 and should be finished by 10.  These are all Mountain Standard Time.  Then recovery and a night in the hospital and release the next day. 

BOY, writing it here it sounds so quick and easy.  Hope I still feel the same this time tomorrow.

Companies called shopper reporting agencies (CRAs) or credit score bureaus compile and promote your credit report
to companies. The a technique to search out out if a bank
card company is a scam, can be to look up a shopper report on the company.
Composed with beautiful gardens and architectonic parts, Park
Guell is top-of-the-line public parks on this planet.
That company merged with a public firm, Advanced Financial Company to
turn into its fundamental working division. Guantee that the company that points the secured bank card
to you will report your good payment historical past to the three huge credit reporting companies.
The Payment Gateway is aligned with the companies supplied by a few
of the most trusted cost gateways. The store in identified for providing fine
quality companies and has some of probably the most devoted purchasers
who make up a big chunk of the area of interest. This rip-off would possibly sound straightforward to establish, but many
rip-off operations make them believable by making use of professional sounding telephone representatives, falsified company information, or by making use of actual information about an actual financial institution or
bank card firm.

but I actually thought you would probably have something helpful to talk about.
All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you can fix if you were not too busy looking for attention.
