Tired of fighting ith insurance.

  • Hi, I was diagnosed on 2005 with brast cancer.  I developed lymphodema 1 year later.  Ihave been through therapy 2 times now.  Someone suggested the flexi touch.I had a demo and it really worked.It is to gard to give yourself areally goodmassage.  My insurance will not cover it and Ihave to fight and try to get them topay for it.  At first they wuold not let me get the therapy and they approved after 4 months of fighting. Has anyone had this problem.Let me kno what you did to over come allthe red tape.
