Why I work for my insurance

$2,704.00 spent on home health care and pharmacy for one synagis visit for Chelsi....mind you this is a monthly charge every month for 6 months.  We pay $0.00!!

The perk to my work.

3rd Synagis Round Tomorrow

We have a new nurse too.  Please say a little prayer these will stop hurting Chelsi.  She's uncomfortable around the site of the injections for the first day and a half. 

I am VERY grateful our new insurance for 2007 has quickly agreed to cover these, in full, as well.  These are VERY expensive injections...I believe around $1,000 and we're not responsible for one penny.

For anyone who doesn't know what Synagis is (I didn't know before Chelsi); Synagis is an injection that can be given to prevent RSV in premature and other babies that are more at risk for contracting this terrible virus.  This virus kills and it's absolutely necessary for a baby born as prematurely as Chelsi was (10 weeks) to have this for the first two years.  She missed the first season as she was in Korea the entire time they do it (November through April), so we've been doing it since this past November.  Anything to keep my baby from being hospitalized with a life-threatening illness.

Chelsi’s getting her synagis!!!!!

After pestering the heck out of the specialty pharmacy through our insurance and the insurance company themselves, they approved her.  Home health will begin coming to our house next month for the shots!!!  Of course, we have to hurdle this again with the change in insurance companies in January, but one thing at a time.

 Now hopefully, she'll be a healthy girl this year!!

Getting closer to “hopefully” getting our synagis.

Our ped's office turned in Chelsi's synagis application last Tuesday.  I called the pharmacy carrier tpday and they said they've faxed the information to our health insurance office and once they verify we have coverage we should hear something.  I feel in my heart this is the best thing for Chelsi. 

Chase had RSV when he was almost 2 and he had a terrible time with it.  I realize he has reactive airway disease, but Chelsi's only 1 and has already had pneumonia and was a premie, etc., etc., etc. 

I really hope we get this for her to keep her healthy this Winter.  Bad thing is after we get this insurance to approve it we have to start all over again in January because I have to change carriers then.  UGH!  I'm praying we don't have a interruption of her shots.
