It has now been two months since my fusion surgery, and NOW my insurance has denied covering the bone stimulator I have been wearing since it was brought to me a few days after surgery. Insurance letter states that it is "experimental" and they do not cover such things.
I am perplexed, I have read that the rate of fusion is doubled in studies, and many people have had great success with them, so I had no idea when I started wearing it that it was still considered experimental. Has anyone else dealt with this? I am thinking about filing an appeal. Or at least sending it back in the box it came in with all manuals, and saying I never used it! The insurance was charged $5,000 for it, and I am certainly not paying for it.
Thank you for any help.
