FEP-Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma Federal Complaint - Is Blue Cross Going Down The Tubes?
MIDWEST CITY, OKLAHOMA -- I have carried Federal Blue Cross for many, many years with no complaints. This year, I began costing them money, having been diagnosed with stage 2A breast cancer. I underwent lumpectomy, chemotherapy, and radiation per my oncologists directions. I am still, after 4 months, fighting them for payment on $74K of radiation for being 'not medically necessary' (???) and am going through the appeal process at this time. A cancer patient should not have to be so stressed out about how to pay for treatment. Health care providers in my area have told me that they are beginning to turn patients away when told they have Blue Cross!
I was told that just a few days ago when I went to have my PET scan. What is happening to this company???
