I had knee surgery on the 26th of October. On the 31st I received a letter stating it was not medically necessary. Now they’re stopping PT and I’m sure they will bill me for surgery. I was told by doctor office and PT office it was all 100% covered, otherwise I would not have had it done. What should I do?

I would reach out to your insurance company for a more specific reason for the denial other than medical necessity.
Did someone forget to get authorization? Did the provider not code correctly? etc…
I would then take this information back to the surgeon’s office for their assistance in getting this bill paid by appealing the denial. Time is of the essence!
If you need assistance, please reach out.
