Dr Oz: Life-Saving Treatments Not Covered By Insurance
Montel Williams knows all-too-well how much of a disaster it can be to find out that a medical claim was denied or a life-changing procedure would not be covered by insurance. Every year insurance companies initially reject at least 200 million claims. Sometimes their reasons are technical, like improper filing or paperwork, but in other times, the amount of coverage for treatment falls into a bit of a grey area. The doctor will argue the treatment is critical and often a case of life or death, but the insurance company will argue that the treatment is experimental, risky, medically unnecessary, or unproven.
