I WAS APPPPPPPPPPROVED!!!!!!!! The IRO overturned the denial!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just got home from work and there was a letter. I’m a big baby right now over this. I’m going to run out of tissues, lol. I will forward you this letter first thing in the morning and will call your office as well! I can not thank you ALL enough. WOW!!!!
Thank you so much for your email. I honestly didn’t think that things would change with this appeal but it was worth trying. Thank you for all of your hard work and follow up. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate everything that you have done for me. It is amazing to know that there are people in your corner. All the best to you and your clients.
Thank you for the great news. I will call my surgeon’s office to work out a schedule. I am grateful that they referred me to your office and I will recommend you to anyone who needs assistance. I believe that this result was achieved only through the advocacy of your firm. Thank you very much for all of your effort.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time out of your day to update me as well as fighting for me to get this operation. I can’t express enough the joy that it brings me to have such wonderful people at my back when I most need them. I know that this is not final but I still thank you from the bottom of my heart.
OMG! I was NOT expecting this! I tried to call you when I received your message, but I think your office was already closed for the day. I will call back tomorrow just to say THANKS in person! Looks like Christmas came early! I will contact the doctor’s office tomorrow to schedule the surgery as quickly as possible…Words cannot express how thankful I am for your help! You have been such a pleasure to work with! I will make sure my surgeon and his office staff know how helpful you have been so they can be sure to recommend you to others that might be struggling with the same problem.
You are the best Thanks again for everything you did. I know for sure I never could have accomplished this on my own!
Thank you. I’m so emotional right now! You guys are helping me change my life. When everyone told me that I would not be approved,you guys made me feel confident that there was a way. I am forever grateful.
Thank you so very much for this wonderful letter of request. I honestly regret not contacting you when I was initially denied. I am just flabbergasted at the detail and the evidence based references provided. WOW!!! I deeply regret not knowing you existed. You really take the WORD advocacy to a whole new MEANING. Words cannot describe how satisfied I am to see such documentation and how thankful I am for your help. Thank you!
This made my life. Literally. I cannot begin to thank you enough for your expert help in having this over turned for me. I know without your help, it wouldnt have been possible. My surgeon has me scheduled for surgery on Feb 6. I will be sure to stay in touch and let you know how it all goes. I have a lot of hope that I will be able to come off of my insulin pump and have better control with just a few injections. I truly believe this is possible for me, and that my quality of life will be so much better. The work you have done is going to change so much for me. I plan, in turn, to make a difference for many others. Its a pretty great ripple effect, isnt it?
Thank you so much with your help for our patient [AJ]. You are truly miracle workers. Patient is doing well and excited to start her new journey and is very grateful for your services. Have a wonderful holiday season!
Wishing you and Walter a GREAT 2015 also. You both gave me the tool I needed to get my life back – without the both of you (and your AMAZING team) working on my case I cannot say that I would be where I am today. I APPRECIATE all you did and continue to do for people like me. I continue to spread the word about your advocacy group and all you can help other accomplish if they only make that first call or send that first email like I did. I hope others I have talked to have taken advantage of the help and guidance you can provide. I will sing your praises to anyone who will listen – especially if they have a denial for surgery.
