Dr.z and Dr. Ed...finally getting back to you about Aetna denialPosted by Elizabeth C. on 7/22/03 at 07:27 (124944)
Dr Ed and Dr Z,
I finally posted a response to your comments about my insurance problem. It is 'burried' in all the other posts from 7/11 and 7/12. Let me know what you think. Thanks!!!!

I think that the only way you will get Aetna to pay ( maybe) is to take them to small claims court. Its your only hope at this time

It would probably cost me more to go to small claims. I'll have to work out a payment plan with M&M Orthopedics. I sure hope my new insurance will cover the third treatment. My right foot is nowhere near pain free, especially in the morning. I might need more treatments on it in the future. It's a question whether I can afford them. Thanks for your advice.

Good luck Elizabeth. Aetna denied me too. I had to pay for my own treatment. I switched insurance co. but still don't understand why Aetna wont pay for something that works and is cheaper than surgury.

Aetna is very pro-surgery. They rarely pay for orthotics. Go figure.
