My insurance company has a problem with my doctor in that he didn't put me in a step down unit on the second day of surgery. It just happened to be a private room that I didn't ask for. But I went home that day at 11am. Only to return to the hospital three days later for an infection. Then that became a five day semi-private room stay because of infection and painful movement.
Now insurance is fighting with my surgeon about the overnight stay. That I should have been taken to a step down unit instead of the private room.
I really don't need the stress. Anyone else going through this? My neurosurgeon practices there all the time.
One thing is different in that I am a patient that is caught up in a war between Highmark BCBS and UPMC here in Pittsburgh, Pa.
Anyone living here knows the pain I'm in and it's not my back either.
