Living with lung disease and Insurance coverage
I have been denied a lung transplant even though I was a good candidate after completing a year and a half of testing and therapy. Now I have done the testing and therapy again and I am awaiting the pre-approval from Wyoming Medicaid. I am wondering if anyone else from Wyoming has had problems with Wyoming Medicaid. My surgery is scheduled for September in Denver Colorado for the zephyr implant surgery for my lungs. I don't know if it's the right name. It is where they go through the throat and into the lungs to put umbrella device in bad parts of the lung to better the good part left. I am in stage 4 COPD and emphysema with 3.7 lung capacity. I have pre-op appointment in September and I have surgery the day after. Has anyone else had this surgery? I will take any info on the insurance and operation that anyone has. TYIA for your time and support. God bless you all have a great day.
