Schrdinger's referral again today -- will it come through in time for me to do my scheduled bone scan and CT scan? It's a mystery. My subs are teaching my classes today, in anticipation of my needing the time off for procedures; if the referral doesn't come through, it means I've taken a disability day for no good reason. I'll try to use the time productively, which in this case, probably means spending a few hours on the phone with the insurance company, trying to see if I can change what hospital I'm assigned to. Getting married may make that possible, if it's not otherwise.
OH, THE HUMANITY. OH, THE BUREAUCRACY. OH, THE AMERICAN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM.
10:40 update: Despite several phone calls, they still don't know. Insurance is apparently reviewing my case now. I am about to go drop Anand at preschool, and then go to the hospital, just in case it gets approved. Am supposed to start drinking the contrast stuff @ 11, so must know one way or another by then. If not approved, there's two solid hours of my day, wasted.
