Re: Anyone have health insurance issues for OATS procedure?
Sorry to read about your insurance woes. I have Medicare and I don't think the two surgeons I had have billed ( I already have paid my portion for the hospital).
The one thing that comes to mind is your husband's employment. If your insurance is through him, you should find out if there is a person who handles employee benefits and talk to them. The employer may have some leverage or at least a contact at BCBS worth talking to. After all, the employer is PAYING for benefits and may have a bit more leverage with BCBS. You are receiving the benefits and BCBS doesn't want to pay if they don't have to. When I had coverage thru work I found it much more effective to have work sort it out with the insurance, after all the employer could take their business to another company.
Keep us posted and good luck.
