By the next morning, my insurance was reinstated. With a two month credit.
After six months of countless hours of phone calls and lies, in the end, bad press got their attention?
It wasn't enough.
During the 24 hours between publishing and having my health insurance reinstated, the article garnered many, many comments and emails from people thanking me for standing up. They too were struggling with Healthcare issues.
So while I won, I didn't win for anyone else. I didn't save the other families that are hurting and going through this. While on the phone with CareSource I insisted they acknowledge the mistakes that were made, and let me know how policies would change moving forward. I called out the reps who lied to me and gave the dates and times needed to look up the recorded phone calls. Together we outlined the issues I had, and what needed to be addressed or changed.
If you take anything away from my experience, please, don't stop fighting for your family. I don't care if it's you against 1 million people, if your child is involved, you will prevail. NEVER give up without a fight.
