About Me: Male, 61, Decatur, IL, member since Jul 2010
racquetball is my sport of choice, biking, motorcycle, running. 2 kids who I'm very close to, own my home, good job. Pretty happy other than this darn arrythmia thing. I've had it for about 2 years and have pretty much run the meds route to death. I'm ready for ablation
[More] at Cleveland Clinic but pretty unsure about the success rate. I read it's high but hear some pretty awful stories. I would like to communicate with people that have had it done.
Pete: I am contemplating a TTM procedure with Dr Sirak, and am trying to verify my financial responsibility for the physicians portion of the procedure. My BC/BS will handle all of the hospital, plus radiologist, anestheologist and pathologist...MD coverage is out-of-network I am told even though United Health Care is my carrier. Do you mind sharing your experience with the insurance coverage for this surgery? Thanks, Wayne O.
