Sorry, I just need to vent/rant about this. So, DH and I are moving when I'll be 23 weeks. I've had health insurance through my employer here in CO, but the insurance I have here does not exist where we are moving (TX). Therefore, I can't use it to see my new OB when we move. So, of course, I thought it would be relatively easy to get new insurance that will cover me in TX. WRONG.
I'm so upset I feel like crying. I called the benefits person at my current employer and she told me that I cannot cancel the insurance I have despite my relocation. I have to have it through the end of July. I was upset because I'd rather have my money than useless insurance, but that is life I thought. So then, I'm in the process of applying for new health insurance and found out today that the new insurance won't accept me because I'll still have my current insurance. Que major freak out. I will need to see my OB at least twice before the end of July in TX. I was told that MAYBE they will let me have the new insurance if I explain the situation to the underwriter. But not for sure. My sort-of step-father/insurance agent said we might have to appeal and fight them before I'll get insurance in TX. Great.
I don't why I can't get insurance that will actually cover me in TX when my current one wont. Who came up with this? The only other thing I can think of to do is to see if I can change plans through my employer to the more expensive one assuming I can use that one in TX, cancel this application, and try again to switch in August. Or I guess we might just have to pay for the appointments out of pocket. In any case, I'm very upset and disturbed.
