Maybe I can ask a question, does one really need their neuro on board for this? I haven't approached mine yet but he doesn't strike me as the kind that would be receptive (I could be wrong about this too). My GP however I KNOW will be. So being that one needs to monitor various levels of clotting factors and such for a time afterwards, can I use my GP for that and bypass the neuro? (If necessary).

My insurance is a pain though and they just switched to the BS I mean Blue Shield network, which they touted as an advantage "cause ya get more doctors" and I laughed til my sides hurt cause I know they are really doing it to have yet another layer of "NO" and passing the buck. Before, all I needed was a letter of medical necessity, now, with a PPO I need a pre-auth because that's what BS wants, and they aren't even my insurer just a network.
I'm convinced beyond any doubt that MS oops I mean CCVI is a rich people's disease, or it's for poor people, but workings stiffs are pretty well screwed. That's my beef and I'm stickin to it!
