CIGNA Corporation Complaint - Was declined chest CT scan prescribed by family dr. by irrational reason
L.A., CALIFORNIA -- I was still declined with imaging center and my family dr. presenting all supporting doc. Unfair. cause I would pay big portion, probably the whole amount to satisfy my deductible, Dummy dahhhh.
they gave several reasons, which showing none of reason holding water, " Multiple choices " - too many sayings.
1. no previous treatment for cough, pain in chest -
i said there was pain both my chest on and off more than 1 yr, which I don't like to take pain pill of much side effects.
2. x ray was clear, no need for ct scan.
ct scan and x ray are both diagnostic test, ct may see detail tissue for tumor. if x ray showed positive, I would be terminally ill to die. purpose of ct scan is to detect tumor early to prolong life. idiot!!
3. family dr. prescribed ct scan.
i don't think dr. would lie for me to risk his license - bread and butter.
