I called my insurance company yesterday to find out how they were coming along with our request for a stimulator. The insurance rep I talked to said they had just denied the request 1 hour prior to my call. They are sending my Dr. and me a letter with details, so I don't know what they are right now. I don't know if this is standard procedure to deny the first time or not. We won't have the temp put in until we are sure the insurance company will cover it, as the temp costs $6500 and the impanted unit $45,000. We can't cover that cost ourselves. We have done a lot of research on the units and have 3 friends that have had good success with them. I feel that I have run out of options, so would like to try it.
Thanks so much for your concern,
