Medicare supposedly will pay for the ADR surgery although it seems that the hospitlas are not booking the surgeries because Medicare is not paying enough to the hospitlas. The doctors seem willing to cut their fees, but the problems seem to be that Medicare is not reimbursing enough for the cost of the disc. Medicare patients are not allowed to pay any difference in the bills and the hospitals, and doctors are not allowed to bill the patient the difference.

Medicare does pay for surgery overseas in an emergency. I wonder if Medicare would pay for an emergency ADR overseas and if the hospitals there would accept the surgery, and if not if Medicare patients could pay the difference to the doctors and hospital over there.

Any thoughts? Thanks!
