I am so mad right now I can't even see straight.
My Dr's office billing called me to have a chat about my insurance, Aetna. As they are telling me Aetna doesn't cover the routine US at 20 weeks... because it's routine. All other ultrasounds they will cover but not the 20 week one. But wait... they will cover it if there is a problem. How can they not cover the most important US of your pregnancy? You know the one that checks for defects and looks at the heart and spine and limbs. Seriously.
My cost... about $600... but they will give me a 20% discount since I have to pay out of pocket... unless there is a problem. Seriously??!!
My brother died of an undetected heart defect, and they want to pull this BS on an ultrasound that looks for these things. Seriously??!!
Oh, and they want a credit card on file to cover the cost of this US.
