I am 6 months out from my last chemotherapy treatment and my insurance is refusing to pay for a PET scan unless I have a CT Scan that shows something to warrant a PET, is anyone else having this problem with insurance? If this is not recommened as a regular test / follow up by the ACS why is that? Should we not be using all the tools possible to prevent cancer and alert us as early as possible to its' reoccurrence? Any input would be appreciated.
I have done everything my doctors have asked or suggested I do not want to suffer a recurrence that is not detected as early as possible because an insurance company doesn't want to pay for a test.
Thank you and God Bless
