Please join in demanding Tricare/Humana reverse the decision and follow the practice of other major insurers and Orthopedic specialists and surgeons who support this surgery, to end its denial of coverage for Hip Arthroscopy with Labral repair patients. Tricare/Humana is not only denying us coverage, it is denying us a pain-free life - not just for my daughter, but ALL who are suffering from this ailment.

 

Case ID # 2013270000340

 

Megan McConnell has been under numerous doctors’ care for this issue now for over 18 months, prior to beginning care with Dr. Bush’s Orthopedic Specialty Associates Fort Worth care in April 2013.  Initially for what then she called a “twinge of discomfort” since it first presented itself February 2012 and began to arise in her Right Hip.  The “twinge of discomfort” then became more persistent, which then turned into and became the chronic and acute pain in right her hip she now has to contend and live with today – as a result of being denied this surgery.

Prior and during to this time frame (February 2012 to present) we have exhausted and explored many different treatments and specialists for Megan during this time which included not only Orthopedic, but Airrosti, and Chiropractic, and several trips to the ER. 

<!--[if !supportLineBreakNewLine]-->
<!--[endif]-->

While Megan was under the various other attending and overseeing physicians and specialist’s -   Megan has undergone several MRI’s, multiple X-rays, and months of Physical Therapy treatments on quite a few number of occasions, a cortisone injection, and yet she is still in acute discomfort.   While treatments and the doctors who have handled and provided her care thus far has offered some progress or it was temporary at best.  (No reflection on any of them or practices)  But the denial of medical treatment of this necessary procedure however, will ultimately affect Megan’s long term quality of life as a result of inaction and non-coverage on the part of Tricare/Humana.

<!--[if !supportLineBreakNewLine]-->
<!--[endif]-->

We are in our 3rd and final appeal.... Please stand with us for this necessary surgery not just for her, but all who are being denied this procedure with Tricare/Humana.

Thank you,
