M>Here we have had the choice of any leg guy or gal in our area to
choose from and the insurance pays, if it is going to pay. I did not
know insurance could tell you who you have to use. That would
suck for sure.
Be curious to know who provides this insurance---and at what
price? Bet with the monthly payments I could feed a family of four.
And if it is going to pay? If it does not, what good is this insurance
when you need (not want) a new rig?
Well Wayne, I guess I could look up the name, but that would involve getting my fat ass up and putting some effort out. I can not remember the name at the moment. I will check it though. I do know the cost is 246.50 dollars a month. That will increase with the next birthday. The advantage of getting old huh, hahhhaha.
Mind you this insurance does try not to pay for things, but if one is persistant it pays. As in things like the alpha liners. They said it would not pay for another set this year, but the prosthetist actually sent an old one to them and asked if they would like this against the stump. They payed.
