A Real Pain in the NeckTrina’s Neck Pain Surgery
Trina Bull, a second-grade teacher from California, has dealt with neck pain for several years, stemming from a serious car accident at the age of four. Even though the pain had gotten unbearable, she was still surprised when her doctor informed her she would need neck surgery. So, she started planning.
“I started going through the process on my own and decided to go to Scripps, a top hospital. It turned out that my normal insurance wouldn’t cover it. After the stress of coordinating everything on my own, to be turned down by my insurance was incredibly frustrating. I was thinking I would have to start the whole process over on my own, and still not be sure if I was doing all the right things.”
“I told a coworker what happened, and she confidently told me that we have an addendum policy through Carrum Health, and that everything would be easily taken care of. She was absolutely right, and I couldn’t believe that I had access to this amazing benefit all along. I was so relieved that I wouldn’t have to coordinate the whole thing myself, especially as I was experiencing so much pain. Carrum Health was an advocate for me and truly took care of everything.”
