    I am not sure what type of surgery your wife is having. I live in NJ had my surgery @ Pennsylvania Hospital & have Blue Cross & Blue Shield. My neurosurgeon had to preauthorize my surgery. I had ACDF 2 levels with fusion. It might be they type of surgery or your medical contract is limited. I would call the insurance company & question them. BC/BS paid for all my surgery bills.
    Good luck!
