Survivor of a head on crash by a wrong way driver on I-8 Freeway On April 24, 2019 I was airlifted to Abrazo West Campus Hospital after being hit head on by a wrong way driver on the I-8 Freeway outside Dateline, I assumed that all would be covered by Ambetter insurance of Florida as they told me that all payments were made. Currently the most aggressive of all providers has been Sonoran Orthopedics and Air Method Ambulance. Both were paid a fair amount according to my insurance company under the Emergency Rates provided in Trauma situations. While I was unconscious, I now find that the inability to make a decision during this traumatic experience is affecting me in ways I never imagined. If I had a choice I would never have let either one of these providers be part of my care team. I would have requested in network providers if I knew what difficulties I was going to face with these two providers specifically. Sonoran has decided they were out of network even though Dr. Billhymer was

My mother had a pressure wound that would not heal. After 10 months with a wound vac, going to a wound center and two surgeries, she was finally referred to Dr. Billhymer. He performed surgery again but with a very aggressive cleansing during surgery and intense antibiotic infusion therapy after. She healed beautifully. We were so thankful for Dr. Billhymer. Brilliant Doctor. We saw him when he was in Peoria, IL.
