“Amy has been working so diligently with the insurance company and government offices to get the procedures authorized. It has been a long hard fought battle and we could not have been assigned a more caring and thoughtful person as Amy.”
As the Patient Advocate and Legal Counsel for Dr. Granzow’s medical practice, Amy has successfully helped hundreds of patients in obtaining lymphedema or lipedema surgery approval where insurance companies denied coverage. Her success rate in obtaining coverage of over 90% for lymphedema and lipedema surgeries is unmatched anywhere.
Amy’s expertise and knowledge produces results and helps our patients: “Every patient is important to me. I’m dedicated to fighting alongside every patient against unjust surgery denials. The lymphedema and lipedema surgeries performed by Dr. Granzow are proven and effective treatment for patients. Insurance companies cannot claim that lymphedema surgery is investigational or lacks medical necessity. Lymphedema and lipedema patients suffer serious and debilitating medical conditions and deserve the best treatment available. I’m not afraid to take on any insurance company in the U.S. or abroad.”
With a solid track record for obtaining insurance coverage for lymphedema and lipedema patients, Amy is unmatched in assisting patients through the health insurance appeal process as well as appeals with various state and federal government agencies.
Amy is a passionate advocate for patients along with being a fierce advocate for her daughter, Cora, who suffers from a severe genetic disorder, Angelman Syndrome. Cora was diagnosed with Angelman Syndrome just before turning two years old. She suffers from seizures and experiences significant difficulties in gross and fine motor skills as well as speech. Amy understands firsthand the challenges and obstacles involving medical insurance coverage and the tenacity required to face them.
