Still haven’t been able to pin down my insurance company as to wether I’m covered or not. Do any of you know how much more expensive dr Eid is? I have Blue plus metro ppo, would any of you know if they cover this procedure?
First, insurance is state controlled. I have Kansas BCBS Gold plan. I do have coverage for this if caused by physical damage. But only if I go to a BCBS network doctor in part of my state. And BCBS must approve this prior to surgery. That is why I had to pay out of pocket to go to my doctor. You will need to read your insurance policy to find out. I buy my insurance from BCBS and it is the same policy BCBS provides for the Affordable Care Act (AKA OBama care). My state has 3 levels of plans. Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Insurance through a work place can be different also. And as I said states control this so things can be different state to state. You could ask the doctors business office to find out for you.
Kramer was 24K when I went to see him but that did not cover the surgery fitness certification. I went to my GP doctor for that. That covered a 1/2 hour office visit with Kramer and the surgery, then a Friday hotel visit. I am not sure what Eid charges but I think it is around 27K. Eid dose testing that Kramer did not do with me.
