Going into battle

I was wondering if anyone else has gone into battle with their insurance companies over cochlear implants and/or other hearing services (such as a one time trip to a regular audiologist to get a referral to the ENT).

If you have gone in to battle, and been on the victorious side, what tips do you have for me? We found out today that my daughters insurance company is refusing everything from everyone that is an ENT or hearing specialist.

Any tips or advice would be wonderful :)

Thanks!

So sorry to hear that.  I have not had any issues with my insurance, although we do have to pay for ear molds and batteries ourselves.  The insurance only paid a minimal amount for the hearing aids, but all the appointments with the ENT and audiologist have been covered.

Maybe someone else with similar experience to you will have some ideas.

Ugh! Don't get me started on insurance! It took me a year to get my sons hearing aids in due to insurance. At first it was insurance then it was manufacture back order it was a mess. Now my youngest has to have hearing aids ordered but they have assured me it will be a much easier process. Yeah ok we will see.

while you are going rounds with your insurance I highly recommend applying for assistance through the hike fund

http://www.thehikefund.org/

they do not base funding on how much you make, they paid for the balance after insurance for us, we were having a difficult time with our insurance but my husband just kept hounding the insurance and finally they gave in....good luck to you
