Exclamation Thanks!

I went to the TriCare benefits office today, and submitted my case. I wrote a 3 page letter on Eva's Hemangioma, as well as facts, figures, and Dr. Waner's credentials. I also included the opinions of other doctors, along with photos of the proliferation of her Hemangioma. I am SOOO scared and nervous of the outcome, but they said they'd get back to me with an answer in 2-3 DAYS! Also, they said that when the doctor fills out a diagnosis code(?), that as long as he doesn't write cosmetic, that it'll be approved.

I don't know if she was just trying to be nice, but I'm hoping that the approval board has a heart. I will let everyone know how it goes, and if I have success, I'll provide any and all info I used so that hopefully someone else can use it too! TriCare is tricky, because they can be great and approve things quickly, and other times they won't budge. Ok, I'll let you know what happens!
