Persistence Pays

We are excited to find out that Lutheran General is going to work with us on the fees for th EEG digital readings. We'd also gotten great news this week that our son's most recent EEG test came back clear with no signs of abnormal brain activity. We are feeling very blessed, and urge other parents to keep asking questions and pushing when you feel that hospital is charging you unfairly. And, a bit of advice, the other hospital we just went to for the EEG told us that the digital readings are not accurate and that's why they don't do them. For once I have to defend the insurance companies on their decision not to pay for this kind of test. You get the feeling that hospitals just need to pay for new types of equipment and try topass the costs along to you.
