Blue Cross Blue Shield reviewing fertility policy

My grievance, although initially denied, has been escalated to some sort of medical director at Blue Cross Blue Shield.  I’ve accepted the fact that they won’t reimburse me according to their current policy.  That being said, I intend on raising some public awareness about this issue, as it is relevant to every young person going through chemotherapy.

On a positive note, Dana-Farber provides free snacks and lunch to chemo patients.  I’m nervous, and strangely excited to get my treatment started.  I’ll have internet access in the infusion room, thus my plan is to continue to work for my company, but as a remote employee.

    Bill, This is a great blog and will help others, too. It’s a shame your have to fight the insurance battle along with everything else. Things need to change. You’re in my thoughts. Good Luck tomorrow and we’ll all do brunch again soon. I admire your strength and positive attitude! Judy
