I collected my letter and sent the original to the consultant

02 June 2017

I collected my letter and sent the original to the consultant with a copy for my insurance company.

Over the weekend I emailed all letters and appointments to my insurance company together with an email requesting that they cover this treatment and supply me with an authorisation number.

I saw my doctor re a letter requesting assessment for cochlear

I saw my doctor re a letter requesting assessment for cochlear – one had been dictated in December but had gone no further. This doctor said she would write a letter which I could collect in  a few days. I received an appointment for my MRI scan for Monday 5th June!!!

Told my lipreading group about my experiences and compared notes with my friend.

Told my lipreading group about my experiences and compared notes with my friend.  All very supportive.  My husband too has said I must have the cochlear implant even if insurance won‘t cover it.  He rang the insurance company but was told they needed a letter from my GP so that they could issue an authorisation number.  I texted my surgery as I had requested a letter in December.

Met with the consultant, a most charming man.

Met with  the consultant, a most charming man.  We discussed my hearing, together with my health issues.  He was very sympathetic and understanding. I had a hearing test.  I also have tinnitus which makes it difficult to know if you are really hearing the high frequency sounds but I did my best.

I have decided to seek advice on whether I might be suitable for a cochlear implant.

Hello Lipreading friends,

I thought that you might be interested to know that after some years of dithering I have decided to seek advice on whether I might be suitable for a cochlear implant.
