I need to vent!!!!! I hope you don't mind.
I have been feeling like complete **** for about 2 years. I'm 29 year old female. The first dr's were dumb and missed the problem. I now see an endocrinologist. I found out I have type 2 diabetes. I didn't feel a great connection with my first endocrinologist and I found another one in the area that is very friendly and thorough. She ordered lots of blood work and a thyroid sonogram. The blood work came back indicating I needed to have a MRI of pituitary gland with and without contrast, but she wanted me to check with insurance on it first.
My insurance only covers it if the $2000 deductible has been met first!!!! So, I have to pay out of pocket pricing which will likely be better than help from insurance knocking the price down for them being "in network". As if I wasn't stressed enough about having to pay for it, I got a bill yesterday from the hospital for the thyroid sonogram (which by the way came back completely normal) for $600.
This blows. I just don't want to spend this kindof money on these things. I like to hord my money and spend it on fun things. LOL.
