Battling The Insurance Company Over My Coccygectomy
I was notified by my insurance company that they have denied the claim for my two-day hospital stay following my coccygectomy (tailbone removal) because they considered the stay to be ‘medically unnecessary’ . The pain after the surgery was so intense that I received I.V. pain medication including morphine and dilaudid. They even denied the anesthesiologist’s claim. I suppose the insurance company thinks I should have had the surgery while I was awake.
My recovery has gone so well, and my spirits have been high – but this blow does nothing to make my recovery any smoother.
I have appeal the decision with my insurance company, and I’ll be sure to give an update once this is resolved.
