My husb was given a sleep study kit to do at home to test for sleep apnea. Unfortunately, we did not get the message from the Dr.'s office not to do it, b/c our insurance wouldn't cover it (a $300 test)- No - instead they (the Ins. Co. ) would rather pay thousands of $$$ to have my husb go to a sleep clinic, over nite- to be tested. How stupid! And we wonder why our health care system is so expensive & mismanaged.

It is the same logic that made the insurance company deny higher percentage coverage for emergency surgery my son had after a 4-wheeler accident. They said we should have gone past our local hospital and driven 45 miles away to Raleigh to the emergency room at Wake Med. I guess the word "emergency" is what they didn't understand. They didn't even care that we made the required call and reported the accident. No instructions were given that we had to go to an "in network" doctor 45 miles west while my son bleed all over the place. This is the crap that needed reform and not the load of BS we are being forced to deal with.
