Anyone else having this problem?
- I have been retired since April 2010 after 37 years of service. Over the last several months, my wife has been seeing a orthopedic physician due to severe neck pain. He prescribed physical therapy and my wife completed 6 weeks of therapy at a facility that we have both used in the past.
We got notice from Blue Cross that they weren’t paying for the therapy and that they would review the claim. Today we received notice from them that they denied the claim because they feel it was “not a medical necessity.” We thought that maybe it was coded wrong or something like that so we called the therapy place and were informed that (at least at this place) the City has been denying ALL city workers therapy claims and that BCBS should have told everyone from the beginning.
So I’m wondering if anyone else has had this type of problem or is Mayor Shortstack diluting our benefits without notice?
We know retiree healthcare is supposed to end in 2013. We're sure Rahm is looking to offload any and everything he can into Obamacare. Is this a preview?
