I have a new met in my mediastinum detected on a PET Scan with FDG tracer(the least sensitive). My ordinal mets were in my lungs. A second opinion urologic oncologist recommended getting Axumin scan for better idea if this is oligometastasis or not.
Problem is that I am in a Kaiser Medicare Advantage Plan and would need to convince the bureaucrats that they should pay for the Scan. Has anyone been successful in Medicare Advantage, especially KP getting coverage?
I am in Denver. Nearest Axumin is in Salt Lake City.
