Good information to know !!!

Good information to know !!!

I just want to provide some more clarity regarding Choice Care.

So our last update was regarding our attempt to get Triwest/Choice care to farm out my epidural to an outside neck doctor.  Request was January 28, 2016.  I didn’t hear anything from Choice care so on February 9th I called to Choice care to inquire.  I was told that they hadn’t received anything regarding my request.  So I called Mike Carter, Patient Advocate at Viera VA.  He explained to me that the epidural was not eligible because the initial appt with pain management was within the 30 days.  So even though the epidural is scheduled outside the 30 day period it didn’t qualify because the initial doctor appt was within the 30 days.  That was new news to me so I thought I’d share it with you all.
