what to tell insurance.....?
Heres my situation..... I wanna start a gh cycle but i want to make sure my growth plated have fused..... My doctor will need to tell insurance why.... otherwise i'll end up having to pay.
Have any of you guys gotten tested? What'd you tell your doc?
My doc knows about my aas usage and i'll tell him about the GH..... He doesn't approve..... but then again he can't stop me. Is there any valid reason for wanting to know if your growth placed have fused?

Does he know off the record? Because if that info is in your chart, it will cause problems down the road with other insurances

What kind of Dr. are you guys seeing. I always ask them what they are writing down. As a matter of fact I always try and look at the file before the Dr. comes into the office. Hazard I got some issues so it's no a big deal to me. My insurance company has taken care of me all the way. Right now I in the process of interveiwing sergeons for gyno maybe. With my insurance company approved list of providers. Now my script for GH is suppose to start in Jan. That's from my Endo. She's done 3 IGF test and we spoken to the special injections divisons from the insurance pharmacy to discuss the diffrent brands they carry and delivery system. I suspect a very good price because the rep said I am fully covered under my plan for growth-hormone.
Not sure on this but shouldn't your growth plates already closed assuming your over 30?

They close around 22-25 some sooner, they close when you reach maturation. So they close at the same time or round about, that you hormonal system is fully devoloped

You should be able to go in and ask to see your file, to read it and see whats been written down in it etc. HIPAA has really cracked down on how many people can see your file, so Id imagine unless you gave them permission to tell someone about your history or had to for work/insurance purposes, nobody will see it. But I wouldnt tell a doctor about juice anyway, unless I knew him for awhile and trusted that it would be off the record.
