Benefits of Proton Therapy
Chemotherapy is effective at slowing cancerous growths in many patients, but it is also extremely demanding on a patient’s health. X-ray radiation therapy can work for some patients, but it also carries some risks of radiation exposure. Proton therapy combines high effectiveness and minimal side effects into one treatment method.
Many doctors and patients alike consider proton therapy to be the optimal cancer treatment available right now. The only downside is that proton therapy sessions are expensive. Most patients require at least three schedules of treatments, each costing about $15,000. Insurance companies will try to deny a proton therapy claim simply because it is expensive.
We want to hear from you. Call (877) 220-0556 to speak with our Portland proton therapy insurance claim denial lawyers today.
There is no guarantee that proton therapy sessions will be covered by your insurance policy. It is, after all, a specific type of cancer treatment that not all medical institutions offer or accept as a way to safely destroy cancer cells. Before you jump to the conclusion that your claim was wrongfully denied, it is worth checking your health insurance policy to see if proton therapy is even covered. Interpreting the details of your healthcare insurance policy can be intentionally difficult, though, so remember that you can come to our firm for all the help you need.
It is important to once again remind you to not give up on receiving proton therapy treatments just because your initial claim has been denied by your insurance provider. There is a realistic chance that your claim was denied wrongly, either intentionally or inadvertently. With the help of Kantor & Kantor, LLP and our Portland proton therapy claim denial lawyers, you can explore the situation and decide on what to do next.
In some cases, we can issue a stern challenge letter to an insurance company, threatening further legal action if they do not reverse their denial. This strategy often works because insurance companies big and small recognize our law firm’s name and do not want to have to hire a defense attorney to go against our reputable team. When a challenge letter does not suffice, we can officially appeal the denial and take the case to court as necessary. We are here to support you every step of the way and however we can.
