Cervie queen: You sound increasingly desperate and frustrated, which is understandable. From what you have posted, the hospital refused to allow your surgery to be done there because Medicare sets the fees and they were refusing to accept those fees. Your surgeon and/or his billing office should be able to help you understand what procedures and devices Medicare will cover, based on their previous experiences in billing Medicare. I hope this helps.
