Doctor, Fucking, and Tumblr: MEDICAL HACK So, your doctor ordered a test or treatment and your insurance company denied it. That is a typical cost saving method OK, here is what you do: 1. Call the insurance company and tell them you want to speak with the "HIPAA Compliance/Privacy Officer" (By federal law, they have to have one) 2. Then ask them for the NAMES as well as CREDENTIALS of every person accessing your record to make that decision of denial. By law you have a right to that information. 3. They will almost always reverse the decision very shortly rather than admit that the committee is made of low paid HS graduates, looking at "criteria words," making the medical decision to deny your care. Even in the rare case it is made by medical personnel, it is unlikely that it is made by a board certified doctor in that specialty and they DO NOT WANT YOU TO KNOW THIS! 4. Any refusal should be reported to the US Office of Civl Rights (OCR.gov) as a HIPAA violation. BAA, RN breelandwalker: jumpingjacktrash: the-real-seebs: dreamingofmotherhood93: Just an FYI for those in the US with insurance issues this sounds oddly plausible a good doctor will pester the insurance company on your behalf. a couple times in my Back Pain Odyssey my insurance noped out on a procedure, and my doctor called them up and was like “no, really” and they gave in. so if your insurance is in the habit of going “you don’t actually need TWO months of physical therapy, just walk it off,” tell the doctor who ordered it, and they may very well volunteer to, or agree to, call up the insurance people and go “simon says pay for the fucking therapy.” For all my peeps out there fighting the good fight against Big Pharma Bureaucratic Bullshit.
