Weird question. I am in the U.S. and am trying to get health #insurance preauthorization for an out-of-network surgeon to perform a breast reduction on me (to relieve back, neck, and/or shoulder pain to the extent possible for someone with hEDS and very heavy breasts). I need to submit "clinical notes" or other evidence that I've tried alternative measures for 3 months to resolve all pain. Being a member here and performing the exercises certainly counts, but I'm wondering how to show the insurance people this fact in the most convincing way (as opposed to my just stating it). My doctor knows I've been doing Zebra Club, but she did not "prescribe" it or document my glowing reports. Has anyone encountered this kind of situation? If so, what worked? What did not work? Thanks, all!
