I made an appointment with the orthamologist (my ss has a syt looking thing on his eye lid and it just won't go away) anyway I call give all info on him then they say I will have to pay a deductible of 125.00 on top of my copay that I knew I had to pay anyway ($20.00). I thought deductible was only for auto insurance purposes...lol I guess I was wrong. I want to know what the heck why do I have to come up with this just to get him looked and just let the insurance people agrue about it not me I am already paying my part through my job and at the visits.
Can you help me understand this?
Thank you so much!

Ask the person in charge of insurance policy/coverage/plan at your job before going. Go to an Optometrist instead of an Opthamologist. (I've worked for both) An Opthamologist could be considered a specialist with your insurance company and an Optometrist isn't. (Opto cheaper, Optha expensive) That may be why the deductible. For the sty in the mean time, put warm compresses on it every day, that generally will draw the sty out, if not, relieve it until you get into the doctor.
