Perhaps another result of cv?

My husband just went to eye specialist. Blurred vision in one eye, sent to specialist, diagnosed brvo which I guess is like a stroke in your eye. Doctor said best to have procedure within 2 weeks to one month for any chance of stopping damage to eye. Called to get approval from insurance company and they said it would take 72 hours to maybe get approval. The doctor said he had never heard of such a thing.

Our insurance is not great, not terrible, but the only thing offered by his company. It has a high deductible. I read up on doctor google, sounds like he should get it done. We did check into financial assistance. We have a little bit of savings and have cashed in a lot of 401 in light of this and stock market crash.

We will deal with whatever comes, still paying bills from his cancer a few years ago, but what I am wondering is if they are putting holds on treatments as insurance companies figure out how much everything is going to cost them.

For some reason I don't trust insurance companies. We are both in our early 60s and I am somewhat high risk for cv. Just a little frustrated right now.

1. "For some reason I don't trust insurance companies."

That's because the only thing they can be trusted to do is make a profit.
