Can’t We All Just Get Along?
The update this morning is that we are working through some billing code issues. Apparently we can use IUH Home Care, but the issue now is that Anthem has codes for Outpatient Administration of Blinatumomab but not Home Care administration. So IUH Home Care is afraid of eating the cost and not getting reimbursed. They’ve contacted Anthem, but so far apparently aren’t getting through to the right people. So if you have a good friend at Anthem that could just type in the secret code for my approval, why don’t you give them a call (no really. Call them right now).
I have been told that I will know my admit date sometime today. I think if we don’t get home care resolved, then I’ll have to travel to the infusion center every 2 days to have my infusion changed out. Of course that won’t happen because you just called your Anthem buddy and smoothed everything over for me. Thanks! I owe you a beer.
I’ll post another update once I have more info. For now the only thing you need to do is call your Anthem buddy back and double check they entered the code.
