RANT/ COMPLAINT: PISS ON CIGNA HEALTH INS CO.

In advance disclaimer:  I know this will not do anything except make me feel a little better.

Chalk this one up for some bad PR and community awareness. Not that they care, right :)

Cigna Ins Co. are ****/ bastards - they denied my ability have a 'pelvis scan' as part of my semi-annual routine scan after being only 1 year post-surgery. The Dr spoke to them and they still said, "based on his previous scans, we do not believe he needs this....bla, bla, bla....." 

The Dr ordered [ pelvis and abdomen with/ without contrast ] and they only allowed abdomen with contrast. The lady that schedules the scans told me "I should feel lucky they approved what they did" - I guess she sees some real shot, right?

Anyway, BS, BS, BS!!  Always, BS. Can I heal in peace w/o having to get upset? 

God, please grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

In my case Cigna is the administrater for my health care paid for by my company who covers my health care costs so that is why Cigna tries to keep cost down.

I here you.  AETNA refused to approve me for a breast MRI because I was male.  Well, I have the BRCA1 gene.  I fought it and won.  MRI was negative.

I am lucky in that my cancer care is through NIH, so I do not need to worry about costs.

I am increasingly convinced that we need to restructure the medical system in this country.  Obamacare is a bandaid.

It happens to me sometimes. I may or may not overstep my bounds and someone interprets something \I said wrong All of us try and say the right thing, but sometimes the lisitener hears it wrong,  No harm intended by anyone.
