I did see that.. however, doing some quick math it became problematic for me.. Here's how I broke it down..
Let's say that they cover BAHA under our 'normal' agreement...(i.e. not hearing aids, which I've already confirmed they only cover $1,000 every 36 months for which makes the out of pocket astronomical). Our 'normal' deal is $1,000 deductible and then 80% thereafter.. So, if the BAHA surgery is $40,000 plus the processor (another $5,000).. That's a total price tag of $45,000. Minus my deductible, $44,000.. Of which, they will only cover 80% (or $35,200). So, my out of pocket expense would be $9,800. While that's a pretty good bargain versus the regular price of $45,000, I simply cannot afford $10,000.
I've resigned myself to the fact that either a rich (unknown) uncle sending me a check to cover the expense, or I have to find a new job with better health coverage (before we went belly up, my old company had an HMO plan that would cover 'normally' at 100% with no deductible.. Heck, my $100,000 AN surgery and being in the hospital twice cost me about $2,000 out of pocket. THAT was good coverage. I don't have that luxury now..
Unless you know of some other resource, I simply cannot afford $10,000 for BAHA at this time.. This leaves alone any other debts that I've already accumulated that are tied to, albeit not directly, to my AN.. (e.g. lost wages, parking fees at the hospital for J to come see me, etc..) Pardon the pun, but I'm all ears..
