Has your medical insurance company denied your claim and refuses to pay? Have you received a pre-authorization and still your insurance company refuses to pay? How can you get your insurance company to reverse a denied claim? How do you get a provider to waive your copayment if you are financially unable to pay? Can a provider sue you for a unpaid bill and will they? Can a provider send me to a collection agency for a medical bill? If my insurance company does not pay, am I responsible? If you have these questions or others on why your insurance company is not paying your bills, I can help. I can give you "tricks of the trade" to get your insurance company to pay. I have limited knowledge on Medicare and Medicaid and that is not my expertise. Each state is very different regarding Medicare and Medicaid so you need to review their website when you have questions. So please no Medicare or Medicaid questions!!

I can answer questions about Medicare beneficiaries' eligibility for Medicaid. I cannot answer questions about Medicaid in general or life insurance.

Don't worry. You have a Medigap plan which coordinates with Medicare. If Medicare pays which they will if its a medical necessary procedure than your plan will pay.   Sorry you have to have surgery.
