Received a letter from insurance company today. My lumbar fusion for March 18, 2010 has been denied. It is an axialif. I reckon this is considered experimental. and OH, the letter also states there is no documentation of spinal instability. What a joke. I was at the doctor's Wednesday, he told me he had to call the insurance company and to call back Monday, but he did not tell me it was denied, he said the insurance company needed more information from him.
Well, thanks for listening. If the doctor cannot get them to change their minds, who knows. What will be will be. I cannot afford the fusion. I am a lot disappointed at the moment, but the lord will carry me through and find another way to help me. Just got to keep trying. (But oh there are times when I do not feel like it).
