0321-1414FLMy brother recently suffered a stroke. He is 54 and was in good condition. Stroke result of a malformation in an artery. He had surgery 2 weeks ago to repair his brain bleed, but his insurance provide will not approve the inpatient rehab prescribed by his doctors nor outpatient PT.

I live 500 miles away and am not a medical professional. Fear my brothers condition is impairing his ability to navigate his insurance company to advocate for himself. Would like to engage a professional as time is of the essence in his rehab.

0221-1411NYMy son fell on the street and broke two teeth. We do not have dental insurance but I read that our medical insurance covered for accidental trauma to healthy teeth. However, the dentists do not know the CPT codes that correspond to the dental codes they are familiar with.

I am looking for someone who could help the dentist use the correct medical codes for tooth extraction, implant, etc.

0221-1410CAId like a second opinion on my wife who is 43 years old. They have denied her open heart surgery because she is "not a good candidate". At family meeting I asked who the cardiologist was and who made this decision. Lead Dr. Goebel reluctantly replied Dr. Egrie.

Get medical records and find out who denied Jessicas surgery and why. I phoned the cardiologist Dr. Egrie today and they were not even aware that Jessica was in ICU. I phoned nurses station and asked to message Dr. Egrie and they refused stating he was not her care provider.
