Spinal cord stimulation
#18
AQA Wrote:OOOOOOO, I can just see the IC fighting "medical necessity".

My doctor just submitted a request to the IC for me for one of these. The IC, of course, denied it saying that 1) they never spoke to my doctor and left 2 messages for him. 2) "Not Recommended. Sympathetic therapy is considered investigational."

My doctor actually DID speak to them and they only asked him one question and that was whether or not I had ever had physical therapy. To which my doctor replied, "yes, twice for several months at a time and it's done nothing for her!" My medical records should be sitting right in front of the UniMed doctor where it would clearly have answered those questions for them. Instead they've chosen to lie about it and intentionally delay it.

For those of you who have one and who have had to get WC to cover it, do you have any tips or info as to how your doctors were able to get WC to approve the trial?
