BlueCross/BlueShield....it used to be good insurance! NOT NOW....BCBS representives lie to people and are really stupid! The latest thing BCBS now trying to say is....Allergies arw from an injury or accident so another insurance or someone else has to pay for allergy treatments! so i am just curious...how is it that a person develops allergies from an accident? an injury? does this make any sense to anyone besides BCBS???

All health insurances are rip-offs. I have worked at the same job for over 30 years. Three years ago our insurance reverted (after having good benefits for awhile) to worse than when I first began my job. We cannot blame ACA or anything else except for insurance and medical/pharmacy greed.

I agree with you. Greed and profits shouldn't be a part of our healthcare system.

Of all industrialized countries we are ranked last in healthcare.

It's a shame, we consider our country the greatest and we can't figure out how to provide affordable medical care. So many are against a socialized system but the countries that rank better than ours are all socialized.

A comparison, an MRI here that would cost $1500 to $2000 here cost $100 in Japan. A day in the hospital $150 to $200 here is $10 to $15 in Japan. Their whole system is non-profit.

200 for day in hospital here? Try about 15, 000

You're right, I meant $1500 to $2000.$15,000 is the average stay cost.

Why does it matter if allergies are caused by an accident or injury? If you fell and broke something, you're saying they won't pay? There is a misunderstanding on someones part.

Insurance companies don't look at things logically and they're certainly not looking at getting people the best medical care. They're all about the "bottom line" and how much they NOT have to pay out, period.

Snap out of it and quit whining! Get the denial letter out, follow all the appeal directions, they should get a letter about this once a month from you. Not a phone call or e-mail. Have your doctors office see if they need to code it differently or have any other ideas to help. If people would read and take care of their stuff they wouldn't be mad so much all the time.
