I just received some wonderful news and I could not be happier! I'm going to start from the beginning: Being pregnant, I have received lots of news that I would not normally know or even be concerned with. After all of my test came back normal I asked my doctor what my blood type was, I was just curious because I did not know. "A Negative" she replies, so you will need to have a RhoGam shot at 28 weeks. Knowing very little about this shot, except for the fact that my SIL Pam has negative blood as well, I immediately jump online to read more about it. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, when a mother has negative blood, there is a 50/50 chance her fetus will have positive(depending on the Father's blood type). If these two blood types were to mix, my body would create antibodies against the positive blood therefore leaving a high risk of still birth, miscarriage, and so many more complications now and in any other pregnancies. That, of course, is my definition and I could have confused the facts a bit. Anyway, at my 24 week appointment, my doctor prepared me for the shot I will be given at my next appointment. She gave me a prescription to go to the pharmacy and bring the shot with me to the appointment. She expressed that BCBS Insurance usually does not pay for this shot that is why I have to pick it up, so the doctor doesn't lose any money basically! So here I am back to inquiring if MY insurance is going cover this shot. My insurance does NOT cover this $140 shot! It is considered an Immunization, which is not covered under my plan...THIS IS CRAP! I have to have it...Like I chose to have negative blood! Ready to fight everyone in my path about getting this shot covered, I receive a call from Dawn at doctors office. She is the benefits coordinator and she tells me that she made a request to Caremark Specialty Pharmacy to cover this shot! Dawn is my Angel... Today I get a call from Caremark and they are going to cover this shot and all I will be responsible for is the $27 co-pay. Thank you Lord! You have come through for me once again... Over whelmed with tears, I took a minute to give HIM praise!
Jeramy and I are prepared to pay for the $140 shot, I have to have it, but with Christmas and other medical expenses, this is just a blessing! I am soooo happy!!!
