I'd fight the insurance company on this. Roland and Golfinos do this surgery together all the time (they did mine in April) and I believe they've been doing it for 10 years. We had Golfinos office contact the insurance company and his office was able to get Aetna to cover Roland even though he isn't in our plan and we don't have any out-of-network coverage. I still see Dr. Roland for the facial issues and we pay out of pocket now, although at a reduced rate. I really think, however, that if you ask Golfinos office, they will take up the fight with insurance on your behalf.
Golfinos and Roland are a terrific team and I hope that you are able to get them both covered. PM me if you have any questions, okay?
