We Help Our Patients With Health Insurance Coverage
We understand that patients are worried whether they can afford lymphedema or lipedema surgery. The complexities of the insurance coverage process can be overwhelming. We are proud of our dedicated team, led by Amy Granzow, Director of Patient Advocacy and attorney, in our success in obtaining insurance coverage for our patients. No other lymphedema or lipedema center offers such dedicated efforts as we do when it comes to advocacy. We work closely with each patient so that they can afford the best care.
Insurance coverage denials are not unique to lymphedema or lipedema surgery and are unfortunately quite common. In fact, we hear from patients about coverage denials such as for breast cancer chemotherapy, breast reconstruction, or spine surgeries. We don’t expect our patients to be health insurance experts, especially when they are facing daily challenges of their lymphedema symptoms and concerns. We work closely with our patients to navigate the complexities of the insurance process and obtain the necessary approvals and paperwork required for their care.
