Default Filed my Appeal

Hi all,

I have filed an appeal with my insurance. They cover the surgery, I more than qualify but, they denied me anway. So, I have filed an appeal letter. I sent more information from me as well as my Doc. I am hoping it goes through. I so need this. Prayers, please.

Good luck to you. Insurance companies do that all the time, it's one way of saving money.
