OK- I had my pre op meeting with my NS this week and the nurse had said insurance had not come through yet. I even had the pre op hospital check in....
I have double insurance. The secondary Blue Cross Blue Shield approved it, however my primary denied it. I almost knew they would. They denied the last surgery and we appealed it, (it was approved). They told my NS nurse that I need to have 8 weeks of PT before they would consider it. My NS says that we don't usually ask for PT for cervical spondylolsis (sp) with myelopathy. My incident happened in May.
I am disappointed to say the least. The thought of PT right now makes me cringe- I fear the pain that is sure to come.
I thik we are appealing the denial like last time- I will be calling my NS office to follow up next week.
