As you know I have been diligently advocating for our cause. That is to get Medicare/Medicaid to cover the medical costs for VNS Therapy Depression volunteer study subjects or for Cyberonics to honor their publicly stated contract for “Lifetime Reimbursement Guarantee for All TRD IDE Study Patients”.
There is an investigative reporter who has penned previous articles about Cyberonics who is interested in our unique story. The gentleman’s name is Craig Malisow of the Houston Press.
At the same time I am asking the medical professionals and all others who have knowledge of these patients to share this information with them.
Mr. Malisow would like to hear from any and all of the VNS Therapy Depression Patients and the challenges we are facing without medical insurance coverage for replacement, ex-plantation and/or care. Please contact him at:
I cannot over emphasize the importance of advocating for one’s own wellness and not standing by in silence.
