I was scheduled to per-certify for surgery, Monday morning. I just found out I’d have to cancel my surgery, unless I wanted to pay for it myself. This is because my insurance has new rules, unbeknownst to me; I am restricted to specific surgeons at specific facilities.
I will say this: the surgeons available to me are wholly competent (I think). But I really liked the surgeon I had, so I’m pretty upset. Never mind, I have had back problems for 20 years… this was to be resolved directly but not anymore.
I do think my insurance is going to get me in pretty quickly with another surgeon. But I don’t know what “quick” is, so I have opened my calendar for consultations for now. It’s just up in the air.
I am sorry for anyone I’ve inconvenienced with this. It came as a total surprise.
