Thank you besa and badger, I will certainly look in to that. I am very appreciative of the responses and help.
I have great respect admiration for all of the women (and men) on this forum that help and support others. I am completely aware of how fortunate I am to have never had to endure what many of you have had to endure. I understand that many might feel that going through something like this without a direct family history and not even being BRCA tested let alone having atypia results is possibly crazy. I wonder if others were in my shoes what they would have opted for sometimes. Each biopsy took more of a toll.
Oh--and just a correction of something I typed earlier: I actually did not know that the anesthesiologist (and not to mention my spelling it wrong earlier-thanks ipad) would be in network, but, I did request that he or she be. My BS's office did make me aware a few weeks before the surgery that he would require an assistant. I assumed at the time and believe now that these are the infamous surgical assistants that insurance companies notoriously deny claims with. They notified me in writing and said to contact them if this would be a hardship. I called to ask "how much are we talking here?". The difference between hundreds and thousands and tens of thousands is what defines a hardship. My insurance ended up covering this person. Go figure.
At any rate, I looked at my claims and there are multiple that are incorrect. I need to get started clearing them up.
Thank you all again!
