I’m in the middle of a long post about going to Eric’s college for freshman orientation, but I had to pop in to say…my cochlear implants just got approved!!!!
Paige went out to get the mail and the letter was there. It’s kind of hard to understand (and that’s saying a lot because deciphering insurance used to be part of my job when I worked in Human Resources) but I think it’s approved BOTH cochlear implants. It says:
Coverage Decision for Cochlear Device Implantation – 1 time(s): Coverage for this service has been approved
and then it says
Coverage Decision for Cochlear Device – 2 time(s): Coverage for this service has been approved
It also gives approved coverage decisions for “Comprehensive audiometry threshold evaluation and speech recognition”, “Diag analysis of cochlear implant” 1 times(s) (and it has that listed twice, on separate lines so I assume it’s for each CI), and then “Treatment of speech, language, voice, communication, A/O Auditory Process Disorder”.
So I don’t know 100% for sure, but it sounds like they’ve approved the simultaneous bilateral CI’s…I assume that’s why they’ve approved one implantation and two devices.
Whooooo! Dave is at the dentist so he doesn’t even know yet!
YAY YAY YAY 🙂
