Weekly Expenses November 14, 2009

I have a doctor’s prescription that allows me to have insurance coverage for my every other weekly massages. Because I have lymphedema, as a result of my mastectomy and lymph node removal, the massage is extremely helpful.

Insurance coverage for anything to do with “complications from a mastectomy” is required by the Women’s Health and Cancer Rights Act of 1998 (see the Department of Labor website  for more information)

This week’s expenses: one $30 co-pay for a massage appointment.

Weekly total: $30

Month to date: $30

By the way, check your coverage changes this month: In 2010, my company coverage for massages and chiropractic care will decrease to 24 sessions a year (“in line with the market”). Never mind the diagnosis or the ICD9 code.
