Pipsqueak,

Thank you for your experienced, sage words. I returned here to add to the list of links the mother of them all. The very one you mentioned. The complete URL is:

As you said, it is long, but well worthwhile. Ladybug hinted at it in her earlier post below. Ladybugs wisdom largely exceeds her age, in my opinion.

I have learned that even PPO has its limitations, tho, in our case, lungline nurse tells me NJM accepts Aetna.

For those who are having troubles with insurances I have learned to politely question everything. Read the contract; ask more questions. Learn the term “Network deficiency” especially if a qualified provider is not in your area. Area as defined for us, I believe, is 30 aerial miles. If out of area, network deficiency kicks in. Doesn’t hurt to ask, eh? (yah, I did live near Canada).
