Denied by My Insurance Company!

I was notified by my insurance company that they have denied the claim for my two-day hospital stay following my coccygectomy (tailbone removal) because they considered the stay to be medically unnecessary . The pain after the surgery was so intense that I received I.V. pain medication including morphine and dilaudid. They even denied the anesthesiologists claim. I suppose the insurance company thinks I should have had the surgery while I was awake.

My recovery has gone so well, and my spirits have been high but this blow does nothing to make my recovery any smoother.

I have appeal the decision with my insurance company, and Ill be sure to give an update once this is resolved.
