After seeing her doctor regarding intense back pain, Chris was diagnosed with scoliosis. Because of her rapidly progressing condition, her doctor recommended a specialized surgery that would greatly improve her quality of life. Unfortunately, the recommended doctor was outside of her plan’s network.
Chris contacted her agent to find a new plan that would cover her surgery, which brought her to a UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage plan. The plan’s Medicare National Network – the nation’s largest – allowed her to get the surgery and follow up care she needed at network costs.
The surgery was successful and Chris can again be mobile and active with her grandkids.
“The pain in my back is gone,” she said. “And that’s an amazing thing.”
