“A decision by your health insurer or plan that a health care service, treatment plan, prescription drug or durable medical equipment is medically necessary.

Preauthorization isn’t a promise your health insurance or plan will cover the cost.” –Healthcare.gov

This past weekend I decided to take full advantage of the beautiful weather and headed out solo on the lower Wisconsin River for a three-day kayak trip. I started paddling Wednesday evening with all the essential gear in tote and managed to get about 10 miles downstream where I found a sandbar worth calling home for the night.
