Hi - I had an L4-5 ADR with Dr. Clavel 4 months ago. Filed the international claim with BCBS, who sent it to my local BCBS of MN who denied it all saying it was not a medical necessity and that the procedure is therefore not approved. Can you please share with me how to go about the appeal process? I will really appreciate it. I am trying to get as much information frm all successful appeal candidates so that I put the package together as best as possible! It appears I cannot private message you. Thank you,
