Insurance Companies are Stupid!

We got a letter from our insurance company on Sat. saying the preapproval for Jim's surgery that's scheduled for Feb. 4 was denied because they didn't deem it medically necessary?????? How does the insurance company know what is and is not medically necessary? So now Jim has to take the paperwork to his dr. today so they can appeal it to the insurance company. It's just a pain. It is medically necessary for him to have this done. The man can hardly walk lately because of the pain. He was off work most of last week because of the pain too. I just hope they can get it approved before it's too late for his surgery to take place next Mon.

Yep, stupid. Just like our insurance company being willing to pay for David's nutritional supplement if he takes it via a feeding tube, but not if he drinks it from a can!

Good luck with this. We appealed this stupid decision with our insurance company and lost, so I hope that you have better luck.
