Fun with Insurance

Hi there! I haven't posted in awhile. Eyes are doing okay with the last batch of Botox but not great.

I have scheduled another appointment for Botox in June and the insurance company wants a treatment plan from the ocularplastic surgeon. I spoke to the office manager at the surgeon's office and she said that they don't usually need to send anything to the insurance company. I feel like I am in the middle of all of this. I think part of the problem is that the plastic surgeon that was going to do surgery on me last year, put things in his paperwork to say that the Botox wasn't working at all, but that was not the case.

Is this a routine thing to have a treatment plan from the doctor doing the Botox.

Hoping everyone is doing fine. Now that my son has his own computer, I hope to spend more time on the BB. I lurk from work but don't want to have anyone check up on what I'm writing about.

As far as I know, none of my doctors have ever had to submit a treatment plan to my insurance company.
It is sometimes done prior to surgery or at least to submit an explanation of the surgery and what is to be done to precertify the surgery to see what charges the insurance will pay. Especially if it is an elective surgery but I've never heard of submitting a treatment plan for BOTOX.
Call your insurance company and ask the specifics of this. Plan on being on hold for an hour before you actually get to talk to a human being. And heaven forbid that you should accidently punch in the wrong number and have to start all over again.

Good to hear from you again.
