I made the appointment to get Synvisc shots in one or both knees (my last Synvisc shot was about 4 years ago from Iowa Ortho.) I called my insurance provider, Medicare Advantage/United Healthcare) in advance of the appointment was was told Medicare would cover 80% of the cost and I would pay 20% of the cost of the injections and the office visit co-pay of $40. However, there seemed to be confusion by the PA and MD about whether I could get the shot or not during yesterday's appointment. I was told by Dr. Hanson that Ortho Nebraska needed to get permission to give me the shots from my insurance provider. Now I will need to go back (and pay another $40 to get the shots.)
