i just found out i in fact have medicare, part a, even though i never signed up for it, and have had blue shield from partner's work as my primary insurance. now i learn that blue shield is secondary. if anyone has knowledge about how this works, would you let me know?? blue shield has refused to pay for a pet scan (should i need one), while i'm guessing medicare may approve it. still, blue shield would still need to approve so that the hospital would get enough reimbursement to do a ct/pet scan at all. i'm contacting my gyn and med oncologists to work on getting approval for a ct/pet since they both think they'll probably want me to have this at some point. so far, i've just had the ca 125s and a contrast ct scan.
thanx for any info you can provide.
