Last Friday I began my first IUI cycle blood work and meds. The best part so far is the nurse who drew my blood did not leave me with a nasty bruise on my arm. The worst thing was the darting eye contact of the other fifteen women riding along with me on the conveyor belt of blood work, ultrasounds and infertility. More to come on that.
Other encouraging news, the women there who did make eye contact and chat with me, as we waited our turns to be poked and prodded, were repeat customers, as in they were successful with their doctors and the REACH program. The bad news is, even though my insurance claimed to cover the procedure so far they have rejected the first set of medical bills and denied my scripts. I’m talking about you Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield, how can you pre-approve something and deny it???? F-ing insurance.
