Implant APPROVAL

Postby MK1965 » Tue Aug 28, 2018 6:31 pm

Just learned today my implant was approved by Aetna.
Was out of Country for almost 3 weeks and came back late yesterday.
I was kind of worried about it because my insurance did not cover anything Prostate Ca related except RP.
Today, I already paid surgeon fee ($502.20) and hospital fee ($632.91) and might have some for anesthesia but I already met deductible and maximum out of pocket.
I am very happy with the amount I paid unles something change and I incurre other big amount . Honestly, expected way more.
Now, I am waiting for my big day September 5.
I am relaxed and hope and pray for good outcome.

Awesome!
LGX 21cm .Milam 01/13/16. Horror; both service and surgical outcome. hated infrapubic installation. Kramer revision 03/01/17. 22cm Titan +1.5cm extender. Those who think their opinion is the only one that matters are a danger to themselves and others.

You need to get back at it. That is one cheap way to preserve penile size and elasticity. We are all rooting for you. Good luck. :)

How long did the approval take? I'm hoping to get my revision soon, but can't get to the surgeon until a few weeks before the date I would like it done.
Age 47. ED for over 20 years. Diagnosed with Hypogonadism. Pills and trimix do not work consistently. Implanted with 24cm AMS CX 12/12/17. Infected implant removed and replaced with AMS Spectra 2/18/18. Implanted with 26CM Titan 10/02/18. So far so good.
