What's awesome: After two and a half years of trying, denials, re-written applications, and personally collecting pages upon pages of medical records, Clare has finally been approved for State health insurance that will cover 100% of her medical costs. And they backdated that three months.
What's not: We also found out that they do not reimburse bills, co-pays, deductibles, etc. that we have already paid out-of-pocket. So all those expenses from Clare's two caths (which neatly fell into the three month backdate), numerous co-pays for doctor's visits, so on and so forth, because we are diligent bill-payers and have kept up with our medical costs, we are out of luck.
