    I would suggest doing two things:

    Go to http://www.bcbs.com/ and search for Gastroenterologists. I focused a search on Waldorf and got 100 doctors within a 20 mile radius. The only chance you will have in fighting the insurance company is if the doctor is in their network. BCBS is a big one, so that shouldn't be a problem.

    Go to http://www.gastro.org/ and http://www.acg.gi.org/. See if you can get in contact with someone at those two organizations who might know of a doctor who has successfully gotten BCBS to pay for surgery.

    Thank you SO very much for your help! I will look into that. I did call BCBS and they informed me my Docotr had to send in paperwork to them proving the surgery medically necassary, which I dont see a problem in that, but I do not want to lose valuable money on copayments to various doctors visits that will result in a doctor telling me they will not back me in the fight against my insurance company to pay for this because they do not agree it is medical neccessity. Thanks again for all your help!
