CIGNA Corporation Complaint - Change In Policy And Notification
I am a current recipient of disability benefits from Cigna. I received a call today from my representative at Cigna informing me of a policy change. I was supposedly to have received prior notification of said change -- but, of course, did not. My case is under review -- I had Cancer surgery 2 years ago and currently am being treated by a pain mangement specialist for chronic visceral abdominal pain syndrome. I also have systemic lupus erythmatosis, and recurrent bladder cancer. I have one kidney and have had 5 other cancer related surgeries (three abdominal, one testicular, and one for parathroid cancer. I am on so much pain medication that I can barely type this message and have sever short term memory loss. Yet I am under review again. Social Security still carries me a permanently disabled and I receive a 20% service connected disability payment for service in Vietnam. I am well educated and have worked in government scientific research since 1974. Again, Cigna gave no prior notice of a review nor was information regarding the nature of the policy change forwarded. I still don't know what exactly that change is - but I would guess they are divorcing themselves of Social Security determinations.
We have lost over half of our 401 K and I cannot interest any reputable company in refinancing our VA loan -despite the low interest rates and the streamline procedure mandated by the VA. By the way my combine credit score is 787.
Now I am to lose my only other source of income - due to a "policy change". I have had one physician refuse to treat me because according to him I am so ill that I belong in a tertiary ( hospital) treatment setting. What are we to do. I just returned from a grocery store that cheated me out of $10.00 worth of their own coupons -- due to "system failure". What recourse do we have - is America finished?? Beware -- those who served their country -- it will probably dance on your grave after starving you to death when you are physically unable to work -- by the way I was exposed to Agent Orange - and what has been done about that - a lot of verbiage and still no support for veterans who are now dying by the score due to cancer and other premature illnesses.
