Lizze and I are so pissed off right now I can barely write this. Because of that, I’m going to keep this short and sweet.
Basically, we received a phone call about Emmett’s speech therapy.
Emmett has been having speech therapy for 180 days now and has not progressed fast enough is not caught up yet. Insurance has stated that Emmett will never catch up and so they will no longer cover speech therapy for him.
In other words, they are essentially saying that there is no hope for him and that we should give up.
I don’t have words to express just how pissed off I am right now. I realize insurance is about the bottom line but who the fuck says something like that? How do they sleep at night?
The therapists and staff don’t know what to say and they felt horrible having to call us with the news. I know they will do everything they can for Emmett and I can’t express enough gratitude for that.
My problem is with the insurance company. Emmett has made tremendous progress this past year. It’s true that he has a long way to go but saying that he is incapable of improving is so far beyond irresponsible it’s disgusting.
I will go pick up a copy of the paper work tomorrow and read this for myself. This is absolutely unacceptable and I will make them answer for this decision. I will wage war if necessary to ensure my son gets the help he needs.
Right now I’m venting and I’m sure I’ll take back more rational approach in the morning.
Remember I said, I was beginning to lose hope. Shit like this doesn’t help….
