This is GREAT NEWS for all of those Patients who are denied coverage for Proton Therapy even though they have this treatment in their policies. (Johns doctor had to go back and forth with our insurance carrier and prove that Proton Therapy had to be done as it was better for him than radiation or surgery.) In the end they agreed with our doctor and allowed the treatment. This should not be an issue IF a doctor says it is necessary for any patient IF it is covered in their policy. I always wondered how an insurance company can decide which is best for you.
