Already exhausted all non invasive options; PDE5 inhibitors Cialis and Viagra, VED pumps and for past 14 months injections TRIMIX and BIMIX. I feel it is time for implant. Heard, lots of insurance company denied insurance coverage for IPP. I have insurance thru my employer.(Aetna).
I would like to hear from recent implantees how did it go with their insurance. Was it approved at the first or after it was denied?
Any response and good advice is highly appreciated.
I have Kaiser, will be implanted on the 26th. I checked on the co-pay, it will be $250 for the surgery. I know there will be some follow up costs, office visits for me are $20. So all and all not bad for a $30K surgery! Check with your financial department of Aetna, they should be able to tell what the cost will be. I would think a large company like that would cover it. Good luck with that and hope you have the surgery. From all of the feedback here on FT I'm sure I am doing the right thing.
