Dr. Waners office provided pictures and a dictation of why she needed the surgery. I also feel like I had a wonderful case manager. I personally had to do nothing once I got a case manager to handle it. I just had to pay to my deductible (which was met once I paid for a down payment on the surgery and Dr. Waners consult fee) so I don't think I will have to pay for anything else.
