- Missing an initial evaluation for physical therapy.
- Thinking that evaluation was in July, not June.
- Calling in July to check on the date and time for said evaluation, only to be informed that it was supposed to be a month ago.
- Making a new appointment for said evaluation, then finding out the prescription for it needs to be renewed.
- Calling primary care physician to get prescription renewed.
- Finding out primary care physician is on vacation for two weeks.
- Putting the office assistants through several hours of searching files, fax records, and computer notes for the original prescription in order to have the on-call doctor renew it.
- Not being able to pull that together before the rescheduled evaluation today.
- Missing said evaluation for the second time.
- Receiving a call from the physical therapy office informing me that the reason my primary care office couldn't find the original prescription is because it came from my rheumatologist.
- Oh, and the prescription wasn't necessary for the evaluation, only for any physical therapy following the evaluation.
- Now needing to call my rheumatologist to renew the prescription in order to schedule a physical therapy evaluation for the THIRD time.
Point One. Knowing that the prescription wasn't necessary for today's appointment would have been helpful BEFORE missing the appointment because I was under the impression that I needed the prescription in order to have insurance cover the evaluation.
Point Two. Fibro Fog. It's not just for breakfast, kiddies. You can enjoy Fibro Fog all day long!
