Jo has been an all-star the past few weeks, each day he shows more progress. In fact, he does so well at times it makes me nervous about posting, then I realize God is in control, he is working his way back.
Jo is showing cognitive progress!
I'll spare the post from detailed rants about insurance. The real health care crisis is less about coverage and more about a system designed to send any family, covered or not, into an abyss of debt. We are the luckiest family I know, we have amazing support and I am blessed with great coverage from my employer. Even with that you see what a game is played with these providers. Drs. and insurance companies in constant debate about what is "needed" and what is wanted. An endless stream of letters of "medical necessity" clearly designed to slow the process and delay benefits. Every initial claim is denied, then reviewed, then approved or denied again because they need more info and yet another "medical review". Then ultimately approving what was clearly a necessity from day one, at least 30-45 days after it was needed. In the middle of it all are amazing nurses, Drs, and parents all trying desperately to do the right thing for their loved ones. It is absolutely exhausting to keep up, but I am motivated by getting Jo everything he needs regardless of denials and bureaucracy. I am 100% certain, as I've learned this lesson with my autistic son previously, the insurance company is counting on your weakness, banking on you forgetting, capitalizing on your frustration, and drawing every request out as long as possible, assuming you will give up, they've got the wrong family is they expect that.
Enough negativity, we cannot thank you all enough for the support, we are blessed, and Jo is doing better everyday. He has already defied every prediction about his future, and he and God are just getting started!
