Insurance denial for emergency room care, where to go from here? What should my appeal say?0Hailea2012-07-29 13:45:02
Last month, at 4am I was taken to the emergency room by my husband. I was in excruciating pain, more pain then I had during CHILDBIRTH! My back was having severe muscle spasms. I could not move, could not sleep, could not do anything without being in tears. I was giving an anti-inflammatory shot, muscle relaxer, and pain pill at the ER, sent home and I felt 110% better after treatment. Now, I receive an insurance denial letter from my insurance because A. Bodily functions were not affected B. it was not to save an unborn child and C. It was not harmful to bodily organs. It was 4am and I had nowhere else to go and honestly could not dealt with the pain any longer. I hated to go because I would have to pay the 20% my insurance does not pay, but I had no other choice. Now, I am going to be held responsible for the full amount which is around $3,000! Can someone please tell me how I can successfully appeal this? I'm so worried and don't have ANY extra money, especially not an extra $3,000...Thanks so much.
