It gives one something to sadly chuckle about.

I was just alerted by one of the VNS depression patients, still trying to obtain health insurance approval as a private subscriber for her replacement surgery, of this slide presentation from Cyberonics recent J.P. Morgan Conference of January 15, 2014.

It gives one something to sadly chuckle about. That is Cyberonics leading one to think that they are truly “Supporting appeals” for the depression patient.  In my opinion and based upon what I’ve recently learned from a couple of patients in a similar predicament, that is being insured by a private health insurance carrier but unable to get approval for replacement surgery despite CMS modified decision, Cyberonics appears to be anything but helpful.
