about staff doctors

Posted by sandi

I am sceduled for  a knee replacement on 6/30/09 and my doctors office has informed me my insurance copay is 10,000,00.  I am on c-cap cause of my income I am currently out of work.  My question is instead of canceling my surgury can a staff surgeon do my surgury since it is on c-cap.  I stay in very much pain when walking because it is know bone on bone.  Please respond asap for my surgury us very soon.

I'm not familiar with c-cap or your hospital and the availability of a "staff surgeon".  You should discuss this with your physician or the case manager at the hospital.
