Q: Who should decide which medications and which treatments are best for your condition?
A: Your doctor and you!
If your insurance company has denied your claim for the medications and treatments that you need, you don’t have to settle! You CAN call the insurance company and negotiate on your behalf!
If you follow these steps, you may be able to get your insurance to cover previously denied medications and treatments:
Prepare for your conversations.
- Find out what is actually covered by your plan. Just because your request was denied, it does not necessarily mean that your particular medication or treatment is not covered by your insurance.
- Discuss the other treatment options with your doctor. Find out why these other options ARE NOT right for you!
Talk with your insurance company.
- Insist on a conversation with a decision maker.
- If you don’t get satisfaction with the first person you speak to, ask to speak to a supervisor.
Persistence can often get you the medications and treatments that are best for YOU!
