When Amy and Justin Wallace took their son Wyatt in for a routine tonsillectomy, they thought the surgery would go smoothly. A few days after the surgery, 5-year-old Wyatt wasn’t doing so well.. His primary care physician did a chest X-ray, discovering Wyatt needed immediate health care. His lung had collapsed and his chest cavity was filled with fluid.
“It was very stressful from a mother's standpoint,” Amy said. “And the last thing that we wanted to have to worry about was the financial end of that. And having Blue Cross and Blue Shield insurance, we knew that we didn't have to worry about that.”
“It's good to have good coverage like the Blue Cross Blue Shield coverage because we never had any issues getting those claims paid or getting him the care he needed,” Justin said.
The Wallace family found a trusted doctor and hospital to take care of their son when they needed it the most. Look at one of our last blogs if you’re trying to find a doctor.
