It's there. I think I saw it when I clicked on "view active topics" at the top of the message board a few minutes ago. You may want to go to the next page on the board.

Welcome!

Hello-

I am Bruce Luedeman from the Kansas City, Missouri area in the US. Just joined the board. I've been on high blood pressure medication for about six years. I was diagnosed with a thickening of the ventricular heart wall. It is a congenital issue and at my age has started to create a concern and a heart murmur.

Two questions:

My cardiologist has suggested an implanted defibrillator "just in case" the issue would cause a sudden ventricular fibrillation. I've witnessed two fellows with a implanted defibrillator have a malfunction and the device was giving an unneeded shock. It was debilitating. With one fellow his device was shocking every 10-12 minutes and it was 30 minutes to the hospital before it could be turned off. While that was about 10 years ago are the implanted defibrillator's more reliable now?

I have a BC/BS HMO plan with a $4,000 deductible. The plan will pay for any procedure or medical staff that is in network. The plan will not pay for any physician (or procedure) that jumps into the process and is not in net work. This could potentially saddle my family with years of paying off uninsured medical debt. Has any one faced this challenge? Will a surgeon or a hospital indemnify me against a non network person or procedure being used during the implant surgery ? I doubt it but thought I would ask. Thanks!
