Congratulations. I am new to this. I have recently seen Dr. Blake and Dr. Perry and am fighting with my insurance for approval. I have blue cross blue shield. Dr. Blake submitted and Letter of Medical Necessity to BCBS. I'm waiting to see if that will help. I would appreciate any suggestions or help. Thanks

Yeah that's the route. Dr. Perry can also put in an appeal letter as well..

Congratulations, Nskoog24! That's great! And YAY for you about the insurance being approved! I fought the good fight, but I lost with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas (sorry, mdg786). I am one of Dr. Blake and Dr. Perry's patients, and I've had two nerve decompression surgeries. The first (back of my head) was in August 2008. The second surgery (front of my head) was in September 2010. While it will never be perfect, I'll never be totally pain free, and now I have a few scars, I'm a lot better now that I was before. That's for sure!

Feel free to ask any questions or send me a PM.

Hugs to all!!!

Great to meet another one of their patients! I'm very happy and feel like I'm making the right decision going with them.. Im glad you are feeling better. That's all I hope for too..I don't need to be 100% "cured" but I just want some relief, be able to go back to work, and get my life backSmile I will be just fine with that!

mdg, don't give up. I have bcbs of Illinois and they were going to deny it bought i fought them and didn't give in. Send them any articles you can on the studies that have been done. Sometime they just need to be educated on the subject of o.n. as they don't know what it is!
