How hard should I fight my insurance company to get a pet scan? I have Tri-Care (military retiree) I had one in early '08 but it has been denied two years in a row now. My oncologist has decided that since he can't get the level of care out of my insurance provider then he's not going to be able to follow me anymore. I had cancer in '94 and it just came back in April of '08. The insurance company says my kind of cancer doesn't warrent a pet scan.
