STORIES OF HOPE

One last note, as you have been searching for medical professionals to assist you with Traumatic Brain Injury problems, I want to mention that YOUR INSURANCE may enable you to seek medical help from OTHER STATES and thus other hospitals. This is not to be disrespectful to our local physicians, but there may be other professionals in other states that are on the “leading edge” of treatment. The larger the geographical population - the more cases that doctors treat on a daily basis. You can always call and see if a hospital or physician will accept your insurance. As an example, I have a friend who had a brain tumor and he traveled to Chicago, Illinois to have surgery because his Blue Cross policy was accepted there. Even though he was from a southern state, his insurance would pay for him to be treated in Illinois. He had decided that he wanted a physician who performed brain surgeries every day to “work on him” rather than someone who performed operations only a couple of times a month.
