Default Insurance: Appeal Won!

I've received the good news this week. The RAMQ (governmental insurance here in Quebec, Canada) had denied me coverage for the costs of my operation in May 2003 by Dr. Waner. I have appealed against their decision and won. I will be fully reimbursed. Thanks to Dr. Soulez, the greatest specialist on VB working for adult patients in Quebec, who has been very persuasive. He has now pulled out a vascular malformation team for adults (we already a very good clinic for children) with a new plastic surgeon.
