I received my DENIAL letter via certified mail last week. Surgery is still scheduled for June 11th--XLIF and PLIF of at least 3 levels with hardware removal at L4-S1.
My NS called the insurance company for a peer review and they told him that he should have called the day before and it was DENIED. He asked what to do and they said to start the appeal. The appeal process was immediately started but they said to my NS "don't call us, we'll call you." That was 1 week ago.
The insurance company told my nurse NOT to tell me what was going on and that I would NOT get a DENIAL letter. She called me right away. I received the letter the next day.
I have called my insurance broker and he has made phone calls, but that is the extent of what I have done, besides pray. The June 11th date is very important to me because my husband is a high school teacher and coach and we have 4 children. I feel like I can't sit back and wait for the day to come and go. I am not one to fight hard!
For those of you who have gone through this, I need any and all advice-Please!!
