I know. Like I said before that I wish they could cover HAs that are much cheaper than CI expenses. CI costs pretty high included the expensive device, hosptial and surgery. The more people rely on CI then Bill may put flood insurnace in danger and run out of it while HAs may not. SO, CI is not life threatening. I can understand about the artificial heart or any other things that can be so expensive which is understandable.
