Vivian was born 3 months early. Vivian was born with hip dysplasia and bilateral club feet. She never learned how to eat and was also diagnosed with dysphagia and reflux. She had to have a gastrostomy tube (g-tube) and fundoplication surgery in order to come home from the NICU. Vivian automatically qualified for medicaid because of her 2.2 lb birthweight. After she turned one she couldn't qualify for medicaid because we made too much money. Her formula is a prescibed medical neccessity. Medicaid was the insurance that picked up the whole cost of the formula for year one. United Healthcare had never paid a penny for the formula and the medical supplier made the mistake of billing both. (Apparently when you deal with private insurance and medicaid secondary they often fight over which one pays)The medical supply company did however start to bill me each month but I never opened their mail because I have an automatic bill pay for them each month. By the time I found out insurance wasn't paying I had an $8000 bill. Vivian's formula through the medical supply company was $290 a case (she uses 6-7 cases). I have found it to be much cheaper on walmart.com's webstie at $200. I have set up this fundrazr to help pay off the past due amount and buy formula. Money raised will go straight to her medical bank account. We could always use additional therapy because of course United Healthcare does not provide enough. If we ever want her to learn to eat we need more time in a feeding therapy program. Thank you for your love, prayers, and support.
