Well...maybe just a little...(obviously this will be a rant)

To get a single case agreement for a second opinion (since there is only one specialist in network) they contacted the prospective doctor and asked for complete and supporting documentation.  Since they have never seen me they can't provide this information and their proposed solution is that I come in and self-pay and just hope and pray that the insurance reimburses me.  Eff that. 

Also, since there is no direct number, if I call I will have to start at square one and hear all of the "no, there is no such thing as a single case agreement, you're boned" over and over again until I finally find someone that knows about it and is willing to help.

There has to be someone in your network who knows how to get around that type of block. Post a casting on MM, email everyone (bcc so it doesn't look like spam) you know, post on facebook, etc.

Good Luck!

I will readily help you stab the medical community. Especially the specialists. Most of the ones I've seen don't help much because they're too busy with their belief that all the other doctors I've seen are wrong because... they think they know everything. Or something equally as dumb and self-absorbed.

It just takes time and patience.  I don't have much of either (in the busy sense, not the dying sense)

It's not the specialist, it's the insurance.  As far as I know there's nothing they can do.

I hope this one says that what the other doctor said was wrong!  That would be super awesome!

It doesn't matter, there's only one in network and I saw him already.
