Hello and welcome to the forums.

It's been a while since I was involved in So Cal insurance, but isn't Kaiser all inclusive, you pay them insurance fees and they provide medical services in house? If that's still the case, well, it's their house and they make the rules.

Though, it does seem an odd rule. Perhaps if you talk to them, the docs, the customer service, whoever, you can get someone to make a compelling argument why, in this case, it makes sense to do it in one shot. Don't take the first or even fifth no for an answer. Keep pushing.

If you can't make it happen, you did your best. 3 months for a second surgery is certainly not the end of the world.

Good luck,
