I need some advice on an unnusual situation. My PM is going on 9 years and for the past 3 checkups over 18 months - same story, good for 6 mos come back in 3 mos. After last check up I never met with the electrophysiologist - but his assistant scheduled me for replacement. On the day of surgery I was prepped (shave, IV etc) and taken to cath lab for total prep and start of "happy juice". The PM company tech now advises the electro Doc that it has 6 months to go and Medicare will not pay. Procedure is stopped !!! I am waiting to see who is billed for this.
I welcome any comments.
