Oh boy, it looks like I might have a fight with the insurance company in my future. I checked my claims tonight and the bills from the initial reconstruction were denied with the simple explanation 'Not Covered'.
'Patient Responsibility - $47,200.00'
Uh huh, yea right.
I'll be calling them first thing tomorrow morning. By law insurance companies are required to pay for breast reconstruction in cancer cases. I used a network doctor and hospital and called to check on the procedure ahead of time. I hope it's a mistake on their part.
