I finally have my first appt set for my trial. However, they brought it to my attention that my insurance may not even cover the scs. Shouldnt they have mentioned this to me before leading me down this path A YEAR ago?
I have medicare as my primary and BCBS as my secondary. They said they dont have to get approval from Medicare, and Medicare covers 80%, however they do have to get approval from BCBS.
I called BCBS yesterday and they said that if its deemed investigatory or experimental they will not cover it. Is the SCS considered that?
I am so bummed that I have finally come to terms with getting this done and now the insurance may come in the way. I am in no position whatsoever to pay for this.
Being its a holiday weekend I am not able to get the proper code from the doctor office for the SCS for the insurance company to get the proper answer. I have to wait until Monday.
So I thought maybe I can get some answers on here until then. Thanks everyone.
Until then, hope everyone is able to enjoy their holiday weekend!!
