URGENT EYE SURGERY
Organized by: Winona Workman
Developed cataracts at a young age, the lens for my right eye has been covered by insurance, my left eye requires the Tumir lens $1700 not covered by insurance, this lens is to correct astigmatism and is considered "elective" by insurance. The facility is in network but the doctor is out of network, this requires a $2000 deductible by my insurance, we had to pay $1000 up front before the surgery on my right eye, we had to miss our house payment to cover that cost, I'm to have the second surgery on June 20 and have to have the other $1000 for deductible and the $1700 for the Tumir lens. Since my doctor is out of network I will have to pay $5000 to $6000 for his fees and will have 90 days after the last surgery to pay this off, this will put us in bankruptcy! My husband works for a trucking company and has lost the contract that he was making runs for so our income has dropped $1500 a month and I am on SSDI so I don't receive very much. Any help will be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you for taking the time to read my page!
