Insurance Coverage

Posted by Jean P. on 6/19/02 at 19:31 (088052)

I expect Aetna US Healthcare to deny my request for coverage because of the posting at their web site. They have a list of medical studies that basically state that ESWT is a placebo effect. Many people posting on this board have had similiar difficulties getting coverage. How can I - a person with no medical background - refute their findings? Can the doctors on this board assist us who would challenge the insurers? Perhaps you could point out weaknesses in their arguments or is their assertion right and should I give in and have surgery?

Thank you,
