I mostly just lurk on these boards, but here I go!
I am scheduled to do an HCG trigger shot in a few days. Last week, I had asked my RE's office to fax in the script since it has to be faxed by their office.
Today I got a call from the prescription delivery company (Express Scripts) telling me that pre-authorization by United Healthcare was required and according to my RE, they "DO NOT" call for pre-authorizations (which Express Scripts said was weird.) Fine, whatever, I'll call the freaking HMO myself.
My question to you is:
My HMO states it covers "6 rounds of ovulation induction and 6 IUI's. They paid for the clomid script. However the HMO also states that Fertlity Meds are not covered.
Do you think they will cover the HCG shot (s)?
If not, does anyone know how many I will have to take and how much they cost?
Baby Dust everyone!
