Tales of Insurance Horror
A good friend's mom has breast cancer. Her insurance company is now denying payment for the mastectomy... after the fact.→
She was told it would be covered since, well, it was that or death. Now that the surgery's over and she's recovering (with good odds so far!) they're refusing to pay.
Anyone deal with something like this before? What kind of options do they have?
I feel so awful for them, I can't even imagine what kind of hell this is after all they've already gone through. Appropriately enough, my friend found this out the same day the (very same) insurance company told him that, although they covered his sleep clinic visit since two hours sleep a night is a problem, they will not cover any of the treatments or prescriptions the clinic recommends.
