Broken Scapula, Collarbone, Ribs, Collapsed Lung and $250,000 in Debt, Phil Gaimon Fights On!

Currently appealing the cost of medical treatment with health insurance provider Health Net to the tune of $250,000 dollars.

Ex-Professional bike rider, author and KOM King, Phil Gaimon suffered an horrific crash whilst training for Olympic selection on the track. He broke 11 bones including his ribs and scapula. The crash shattered his Olympic dreams.

The hospitalization and subsequent surgeries have left Phil with a $250,000 debt despite having good health insurance and cycling insurance. Gaimon is now fighting back with an appeals process and has decided to go public with his story!

Phil Gaimon stated, "I was brought to an ER unconscious and I still don't know why that bill isn't covered for $150,000. I think a lot about the moment where I went to a different hospital which seemed to be the only place they could fix my broken shoulderblade. I knew it would be out of network and expensive, but I'd been rolling around in unbearable pain and on heavy narcotics for three days, I was told that they would cover extenuating circumstances and that's what extenuating feels like, but I was far from a sound mind, and now I owe another $100,000. Like someone being tortured, I would have said anything to stop the pain, and I knew there'd be a hassle later. Now I'm feeling better, but $250,000 in debt, and the months of fighting have gotten to me. I'm not sure how, but I hope this story helps someone!"
