BCBS Denial

Posted by Marc W on 3/04/02 at 22:54 (075696)

Please help. I have been suffering PF in both feet for two years. I have had all of the 'conservative' treatments, NSAID's, orthotics, physical therapy, multiple injections. You name it I think I have tried it. My doctor wants to use ESWT, but BCBS of Alabama denied my request. What is my next step? All help will be greatly appreciated. (email removed)

You need to find out why BCBS denied your pre treatment and then you can proceed with other avenues such as a request for a formal hearing in front of their panel.
