My insurance company which is fairly new because we just switched denied my revision surgery. I underwent a multi level fusion last June with rods and screw and there are a couple things going on in there. One, I have a screw that's in the L1 nerve that needs to removed. I havent fused at all at almost 1 year post op and I'm still in so much pain. My doctor put in for an appeal and now I'm just waiting. My doctor said unfortunate this is very common now for them to deny a revision. If I have to live like this for the rest of my days I will go nuts!! Anyone have a denial and got a pproved? I have BCBS PPO so that's why I was boggled by how they denied it! Any words of advice reassurance or anything will help!
