Thank you for getting back to me on 5/20.. My insured is CIGNA.. I have information that they always deny treatment unless your employeer gets involved. I'm on COBRA so exemployeer won't help. am not adverse to filing a law suit. What are you experiences with the Judicial system and these bull shit denials?? I,m located in Florida.
I'm giving them $15K a year.. I'm only asking for less then half back..
Thank you

We have had very bad experience with Cigna. I even did a peer review with their full medical board a few weeks ago. It was for one of the posters on this board. We lost. I still remember when they asked for double blind , randonized studies proving the safety and effectiveness of ESWT. They had both the FDA studies for the dornier and ossatron. The response of one of the doctors was ' all the FDA studies prove was that a shockwave can be shot out of a machine' So suing is probaby the only way.
