Im so upset redface . My insurance wont pay for my epidurals in my back  and I dont have the money to pay for them ,  the only thing my insurance will pay for is back surgery 85 percent of it. It seems that a insurance would want  to pay the lesser cost  epidurals are cheaper than back surgery, They wont even pay for pt which I desperately need. I dont know what to do anymore just live in pain and take my meds and suffer quietly. I have been crying all night. my dr designed a treatment plan and my insurance wont abide by it.   Its hard finding a insurance company that accepts my pre exsisiting  conditions finding a new insurance company is next to impossible.
Thanks for listening and letting me unload. I hope everyone has a lpn .

Kara, I am so sorry that happened to you. Can your doctor help you appeal or ask for pre authorization for you for the epidurals?
You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Your doctor can request that they pay if you haven't tried that option. You can also appeal on your own. I'd go for the doc option if it were fact I have before.

Good luck,
