We have completed an application for Medicaid and are awaiting a response (up to 30 days). I have also taken a Leave of Absence from work in order to closely monitor Ethan at least untl we get an MRI. My husband is working, but this is not enough to carry us over through this diagnosis process.
We did get an EEG 6/1 and saw a pediatric neurologist 6/2. The doctor did state the EEG appeared abnormal, but believes this may be due to Ethan having so many seizures in such a short period of time (6 in one week). Since then, however, Ethan has had 1-2 seizures/staring spells a day. They have ordered for an MRI, but we have not yet been contacted to get this scheduled.
Today we also received a letter from my insurance stating Ethan's hospital visit wasn't covered as it was deemed medically unnecessary. We're going to file an appeal; however, we would definitely appreciate any help you can provide (whether it be financially, through prayer, or billing/coding/insurance assistance). Thank you all for the help you've given so far!! We certainly hope we find some answers soon and Ethan can get back to being himself.
