Update from my previous post - the patient appeal I did for my dad with the 4 page letter and 28 pages of his medical records plus the letter of medical necessity has gone before the Florida Blue Cross medical board where IMRT has been denied for a second and final time today. First appeal denied. Peer to peer with doctor - denied. Patient appeal and doctor medical appeal again - denied for final time today. They will only allow standard radiation and dad’s radiation oncologist will not do standard on my dad as he said it will be detrimental to him given the tumor is pressing into his heart nor will my dad agree to standard for this very reason. I have tried to get a contact email for who made the decision only to be told they do not give out email addresses. I am beyond angry and feel the most helpless I have ever felt as I don’t know what to do for my dad from here. I am contacting attorneys tomorrow to find out info. Does anyone have any further suggestions? I cannot believe this is happening. The tumor growing and pressing into his heart will kill him before the cancer ever will if he doesn’t get radiation asap!!!
