While you are on this subject, I have a question. Is there anyone out there who needed two levels of ADR done, but insurance would only pay for one, but they personally paid out-of-pocket for second? I was told by the Pennsylvania surgeon that insurance companies may be okay with that if you let the ins company know upfront that you're going to do that.

I got the impression from another surgeon I spoke to that it is all or nothing.
