-2 months ago, at a neurologist’s office at Big Famous Hospital-
Me: I think maybe I’ve had dysautonomia for like my entire life?
BFH Dr: yyyep. But you can’t do testing here to get an official dx cause insurance won’t cover it, let me refer you to Other Big Famous Hospital.
-on the phone with OBFH-
Me: I have a referral for testing
OBFH: you can’t have testing til you have a regular appointment with one of our neurologists
OBFH: see you in 2 months
-2 months later-
Me: here I am my autonomic system is borked
OBFH Dr: you didn’t need to see me you could have gone straight to testing
- OBFH test scheduling desk-
Me: I need the tilt tables pls
Scheduler: okay but you know your insurance doesn’t cover that kind of testing right
