Long story short... I've had to switch from 3 different doctors, because, this seems to be the year everyone wants to retire. Jeez!
Up until I came to this new doctor, around 16 weeks pregnant, I have not paid for a single thing, seen a bill, nothing. With this new doc, I am now being billed for the anatomical ultrasound that I had at 20 wks.
I was under the impression that this ultrasound was routine for pregnancies. I'm confused as to why it is not covered under the whole global maternity care. When I talked to tricare, they told me that under GMC, only one U/S is covered. This is strange to me as I've actually had a few... I had 2 vaginal when I first got pregnant with the first doc, then a regular one when I went to see the next doctor, and then when I finally found a doc that wasn't planning on leaving during this pregnancy, he did an U/S at 16 weeks and then did the 20 wk anatomical u/s.
The anatomical is the first one I have been billed for and tricare says its not medically necessary.
Anyone else have this problem? I feel like if it's not medically necessary, why is my doc having me to this when I am going to have to pay for it out of pocket.
Any thoughts or anyone who has experienced this or more experience with Tricare, I would really appreciate your help!
