I called my insurance company this afternoon. Since there are no GYN/ONC within my network I can write a letter of appeal. In my area there are four GYN/ONC, but they are all with one clinic, out of my network. I had to go nearly 150 miles for surgery last year.
I have seen an medical oncologist for over a year now. I just would feel more confident with a GYN/ONC. I feel as though I am entitled to see one. OVCA is so scary as we all know.
Anyway, any suggestions as to how I should "word" my letter? The lady at the insurance company said basically to make my argument as to why I should be allowed to see a GYN/ONC.
