So my son made it to detox today.... but dang I hate hate hate the insurance companies!! My son is on our insurance. When the tx center called the insuarnce they are closed until Monday due to the holiday. So there is no way to get preauthorization!! No way at all... only way is to go to the ER. Honestly I am not sure an ER would have kept him in detox.... but honestly I was not sure he was safe waiting around until Monday... And right now I am very much haunted by his classmate who overdosed on heroin this week. I dont think my son was using heroin, but he has been suicidal before and sitting alone in a hotel room by himself waiting around would not be good at all. So we finally agreed to private pay until Monday when they can call the insurance company... so hopefully they will approve detox... if not for these 3 days at least afterwards.
