Health insurance, as good as it is to have, really frightens me sometimes. My dad's March PET scan was denied by the insurance company. His doctor had to have a peer-to-peer discussion with them, to see if he could get it approved. Well, he was able to. Thank God. I can't understand why an insurance company would deny this test? My dad's lung cancer isn't operable, (at least last we knew)... So why wouldn't they approve the CT, to make sure there has been no negative changes, or mets?
Sorry, just a quick vent. Frightens me that someone or someONES, can have this power over peoples' health and treatments.
