Thanks, for the reply, Tavish. I have tried calling other doctors here, but no one will give me a price on this surgery, even with the code. As for the doctor, he has written me a letter giving reasons for his charges. Can you believe that I did not know that I could not lift my arm above my head? I guess I had just adjusted to this part of my life. Anyway, I am in physical therapy now to help with this and am looking forward to doing the mastopexy sp???? shortly after June 15th. I do have an out of pocket maximum, but it is for "eligible charges" only. I am approaching this so the 20% will eventually go away. However, right now, I believe the devious insurance company is plotting to see how little they can pay on the rest of my claims so that I have to pay more. HA! HA! HA!
I appreciate everyone's advice and I hope all are doing well. Will let you know how this turns out.
