Well, I just got the call, my county health plan will not cover the procedure anyway. Even though I was told that they would, I was misinformed apparently. Now I have to think of something else. I know that my wife, through medicaid would have no issues getting a tubal ligation approved, but she is unwilling to do it and as I have said, has left the birth control completely up to me. Well, I tried, so I don't know what to tell her now.
