For all the praising I did of the infertility coverage in my insurance plan, strike it, and reverse it.
I’m so pissed right now, I’m in tears (related: I really hate that I can’t get mad w/o crying. Just got off the phone w/ the insurance agency to clarify what they meant by “primary infertility coverage.”
Apparently, they mean nothing. I guess it will cover up to 50 percent of DIAGNOSTICS (100, thanks to double-insurance, small woot!). That’s it. I tried to explain to the lady on the phone that I KNOW what’s wrong with me, I can’t get pregnant! What I want is TREATMENT! So yeah, no coverage. All out of pocket. Now say extra-strong prayers that we’re pregnant on this cycle.
I know that most women do infertility treatments w/o the benefit of insurance paying for it, but I was under the impression with a section on my insurance plan called “INFERTILITY BENEFITS” that there would actually be some, you know, infertility benefits.
GAH! This is absolutely ridiculous. Real pleasant way to end a work day.
