This is me dealing with my HMO for my son’s required polio immunization, TB test and blood tests (for blood type and varicella titer). Anybody else having the doctor’s office questioning the necessity of these over and over? I keep telling them that he MUST have this done before he can report and they keep acting like I am requesting this stuff just for the “fun” of it. I am paying for the tests so I wish they would just do it and shut up. Next week we get to have fun with the dental form and x-rays. I found out yesterday that our dentist office doesn’t do panographic x-rays so he will have to be referred elsewhere for that. Can’t wait to see what this is going to cost me! At least the dentist office didn’t question the necessity of our request. I am so looking forward to this stuff being completed.
