Saw my new PM doc for the 2nd time today, first month I asked him to order an mri for my lower back, which he did. I've had two previous MRI's in 09 and 010 which show a herniated, degenerat(ing) L5-s1 disc.
I never got the call from the MRI place and Im not in a hurry to do it so I figured i'd wait for my next apointment and before I even mention it, doc says: So my recip just told me your insurance is appealing your MRI because there gettin expensive.
what the heck is that? can my insurance even do that? would they do that? or did the docs reciptionist just forget to fax it?
Im not so sure about this doc, at my first appointment he told me that he himself is getting a XLIF fusion done by our local ortho spine surgon in the next couple weeks. (the same surgon who ive seen and is considering a fusion for me) but it turns out the doc went on vacation during those two weeks, Doc lied to me for no reason? pfff... so he can say he did it and it went like a breeze, I was back to work in less than a week!, well he didnt say that last part but Im bettin he would.
