I have UPSC that acts like ovarian and is hard to treat. I have experienced denials from insurance companies for PET scans and chemo based on my uterine cancer diagnosis. These same tests and drugs would be covered if I had ovarian.
What's with that discrimination??? Seems like we are second class citizens. Why is ovarian blessed with coverage and those of us that need these same drugs can't get them without a fight or until we "prove" that we are worthy when the other drugs/tests don't work or show enough.
Time is money and may be life threatening. Who makes these decisions? Is there anything that we can do to stop this?
