So as the title states.... Anthem BCBS denied the surgery my doctor wants to do, a Hybrid ALIF/ADR. I got those terrible words "Not Medically Necessary"
Without this surgery to get my spine stable, and away from the nerves.... I am looking at my entire lower half becoming paralyzed from the pressure on my nerves.... The doctor can't even do each portion, the insurance will only cover a single level fusion or a disc replacement... but not both, and not separate surgeries.
I am crushed... I am only 30, and I am looking at spending the rest of my life in a wheelchair.... and all because an insurance company wants to line it's pockets.
