Jason changed jobs and we got new insurance. I was hoping there was a chance that this policy would have bariatric coverage so I called today to see.
You know what else we don't get, orthodontics.
I just wrote a nifty big check to basically have my son tortured for the next two years
but that's not the point of this story -- I'm just whining about the lack of insurance for pretty teeth and a smaller butt.
Seriously, obesity is a serious money drain for insurance companies...it would be cheaper for them to cover the surgery. There's not a lot of foresight into that decision.
I so need to rule the world.
Self-pay it is. In one way that's good, I might have had to do the whole wait six months, now I can go ahead and get it done in the beginning of June like I originally planned (glass half full).
At least the orthodontist has a payment plan, wish that was the case for this surgery.
