Aetna Insurance Complaint - Aetna Insurance Policy Denied To Pay For Pre-Screening Test
BUFFALO, NEW YORK -- I'm 36 yrs old and had my first mammogram on November of 2008. Our Aetna insurance policy paid $340 for the test 100%. In February 2009 Aetan decided to reverse the charge and not pay the claim.
My Aetna insurance policy will not cover routine baseline mammograms for anyone under the age of 40 yrs!
The AMA recommends that all women between the ages of 35-40 have at least one baseline mammogram before the age for 40 for pre-cancerous screening etc. I cannot believe Aetna would deny women the right to have this screening???
As a result I filed an appeal and provided a letter of medical necessity from my physician and Aetna still denied my claim again.
Aetna is a lousy insurance company that does not care about womens health issues. Shame on you Aetna!!!!!
