Denial for a spinal fusion twice. Exhausted all my appeals.
Have also exhausted all conservative treatment with no relief. Was told by BCBS I don't have spinal instability even though three doctors say I need the surgery. Have undergone pain management, facet-joint injections, epidural shots, physical therapy, etc. My most recent lawyer told me it's hard to win a case vs.
ERISA type insurances so he dropped the case. I don't know what to do. Now BCBS is not covering my drug tests to keep my medication going because it's considered lab work.
I have to do this every month to keep my meds. A night mare!
