12 days

1 comment:
It took me 12 days to get SOMEONE at Byrum Healthcare to work on getting me a return label for the order of pump supplies they decided to send me without my authorization or even knowing.

I asked for a benefits investigation for pricing and BAM 2 days later a 3 month supply order worth $428.00 sitting on my porch. I called Byrum the next day and said woah guys what is this?  I never authorized you to mail me this and I never EVER have it mailed to my house to sit outside way out in the boonies.  They told me it would be about 2 weeks for  me to get a return label.  I said that was insane! 

I finally had to call my health insurance company and have them call Byrum to get them to say they will email me a return label in 24-48 hours.  Now lets see how long it takes to get that return label emailed to me.  Yeesh.

Im pretty sure I will order with Edgepark, who I have ordered with before and the pricing is the same as Byrum.   They don't just mail me supplies on a whim. What an ordeal.

Do you have any experience with a supply company mailing you orders without authorizing it with you first?  In 8 years this is the first experience for me.  Its not the end of the world by any means but I can't have that much money just sitting out on my porch and not to mention my ability to pay for that big of an order in one shot.  I always order 1 month of supplies at a time every year until after I hit my deductible.

On a positive note my new health insurance does Pre-Auths for up to 5 year!  So my Dexcom stuff and test strips are pre-authorized for FIVE years!  That just boggles my mind!  I didn't even know insurance companies did that.
