Bay City Man Confined To Wheelchair, Trying To Buy Bionic Legs
His insurance won't cover the $80,000 legs, so he's trying to cover it himself.
Corey Zielinski is paralyzed from the waist down after falling from a tree stand in a hunting accident in 2009. He was told that he'll be confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life.
However, he has a glimmer of hope - two years ago, he was told about ReWalk. It's a robotic exoskeleton that helps people with spinal cord injuries walk again.
Corey, a father and a husband, says that he would LOVE to walk his daughter down the aisle someday so, naturally, he inquired to see if his health insurance would cover the bionic legs.
In no surprise to ANYBODY who has ever dealt with health insurance, they denied him.
He says that he's grateful that the ONLY thing he lost was his ability to walk, but that he'll never stop fighting to receive the ReWalk system. He also needs a new ramp to get in and out of his house.
