I just got a phone call from Condorde Kids, the place the boys go for OT, PT and Speech. Bad news. Gavin will no longer be receiving treatment because insurance says that he’s too old and his scores aren’t bad enough.
Gavin’s on disability and has been for most of his life. Up until a few months ago, that meant that he was on straight Medicaid.
Recently, everyone on Medicaid was forced to switch to an HMO provider.
Our options were very limited and we had to go with whoever would cover the most. At the time, everything was fine and Buckeye was handling everything, they were a pain in the ass, but it worked.
Not only has that changed and they won’t cover his therapy anymore, they also wondering t cover his full prescription of Clozapine either. We have to try and get a doctors override before he runs out in a few days.
Nothing ever comes easy and for a kid that falls going up the steps and can’t put the lid back on a bottle of water by himself, these therapies are extremely important.
Let the battle begin……..
