Ok, so I was schedule for gallbladder surgery Tuesday morning (August 1st) but due to not receiving authorization from Blue cross (geo blue) it is delayed and I have some serious pain right now. Clínica Abreu (which is a network partner) has not received any authorization from them and cannot process me. Supposedly I have received authorization for "observation" "or 23 hours but the attendant at the clinic says they do not do that? GeoBlue says they need results and report saying why I need the surgery. The doctor here looked at my US results and they did an ultrasound and blood test. He said there's no point repeating an MRI, HIDA scan or colonoscopy when it is already determined I need surgery. So how can I go about this? Because I assume if they "observe" me they can send the info back to blue cross for surgery authorization correct? But the lady at the clinic is saying they don't do observation which is confusing. I'm in real pain and this is very frustrating. I'm getting DR insurance. But this needs attention now obviously. I don't know who's fault it is right now. They're telling me right to just scrape up the money (5k us) which I don't have and just get. It reimbursed. This is very frustrating.
