Hip replacement surgery approved

October 22nd, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Just heard back from the Hospital for Special Surgery regarding my upcoming total hip replacement. They received the authorization fax from Tricare this morning.

I’m still waiting on my copy of the authorization, but it looks like things are all set for January 5th. Only 75 days away!

    Just got off the phone with Tricare. They confirmed that my surgery has been authorized! 44 days away…

    I have my boyfriend that is in the same situation. I was wondering what physician you went to that managed to get Tricare’s authorization. It would be greatly appreciated.

    It wasn’t easy. At first Tricare said I had to see someone within my network, but there was no way I was going to trust my hip with the physician they referred me to. I pleaded with them and eventually they approved it. I would try to find someone at your local Tricare/Healthnet office who you can talk to face to face about it. Best of luck.
