RE: Adductors
Just wanted to give a bit of info on the insurance front...

As I said my company is switching from Cigna to BCBS soon. Cigna has said I cannot travel for the purpose of seeking medical treatment - this seems pretty common among US carriers. BCBS said I can, but this is because my company requested this as part of the plan. Normally BCBS does not allow it. Dr. M is in the BCBS worldwide network as a preferred supplier, so this means I would pay in network costs for her services. Of course I'll have to get everthing in writing first. I imagine they will take some issue with going overseas to have in-patient hernia repair when I can stay local and get out-patient care. So in the meantime I'll continue my dialogue with Meyers (at least he's a network doctor in the US). Hopefully he doesn't decide I also have AP and they don't pay all of their share.

Not sure it helps anyone, but thought I'd throw it out there. One thing - make sure you push your insurance company for a definitive answer with respect to your plan. The person that told me no, just assumed based on BCBS standard policy. If I didn't ask a customer service rep (who told me yes) while calling about a different issue I would've taken the first answer as given. Instead I went back to the person that told me no and asked her to confirm.
