So if you have Trauma cover a message to check the definitions.
If you don’t have trauma cover,well I just don’t get that but hey…
Three months ago I posted about getting a regular skin cancer check, Today was my follow up visit. Eight unexpected stitches in my back and feeling woosy means two cancelled appointments today, but get to the point I hear you say.
I joked with the Dr that if its a melanoma make sure you say its 1mm deep because that’s how deep it has to be to make a trauma claim on my policy. Some policies say 1.5mm
Both the Dr and the nurse were horrified and said if they had a melanoma more than .75mm deep they would be very nervous.
So to claim, you need to have something serious and hope its not too serious!! It may be a matter of fractions of a millimetre but I am focused on that right now and suggest you check your policy too!
