Septoplasty Surgery. Advice When Insurance Company Says No?
My 22 year old son has a deviated septum, how? we don't know, it may be something he's had since birth. We received a predetermination from the insurance which states that surgery is not a medical necessity. Early in our lives we never had insurance so the constant nose bleeds and stuffiness were controlled with Kleenex, now that we have insurance they tell us if it were caused by an accident or injury or is therapeutic surgery or to correct a congenital defect it would be covered. Advice please.
If a patient has a deviated septum, it might take time but there is no reason why it shouldn't be covered by insurance
