  • 4 Hernias- Insurance Won’t Pay need help

    Posted by Allan Gage on February 4, 2017 at 8:02 pm

    My name is Allan Gage

    I have two abdominal herinas, and two inguinal hernias.

    My insurance will not pay for the surgury. They say it’s not life threatening. Well…. Maybe it’s or its not but neither is laying down 24/7, I can barley get out of bed.

    What can I do?

    I need help. A way around this medical system or maybe find a doctor who actually cares. If you can help with some information on what I can do your even something to try I’m all ears because I can’t continue to live like this. I need to work to support my family.

    Thank you

    All insurances cover all hernia repairs. You don’t have to have life threatening condition.

    Perhaps there is another nuance in the rejection of the hernia repair? Perhaps it is not the rejection of the repair but the rejection of your facility or surgeon, as they may not be contracted with your insurance?
