Coventry Health Care of Georgia Complaint - Denied

Review by Jessie_77 on 2010-09-01
ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- My doctor sent in a referral for an MRI, because an ultrasound showed several uterine fibroids with the largest 11cm. I have been in pain for the last several months with uterine fibroids pressing on my bladder and other organs. After the referral, Coventry denied the pre-certification citing that they weren't given enough documentation. My physician, performed another ultrasound, doctors notes again to the IR (Interventional Radiology) department with Coventry denying the approval again citing that the procedure was not medically necessary. What more proof do they need. They told me that my physician has exhausted all reconsiderations and that I can not go through another provider. I am in the process of appealing and reporting this the the State Insurance Commissioner. I am so disappointed and extremely upset and considering cancelling my insurance coverage with them.
