Is Your Insurance Denying Coverage for Proton Therapy?

Proton Therapy and Insurance Claim Denial

Kantor & Kantor, LLP Fights for You to Get the Treatment You Need

Following a cancer diagnosis, patients work with their doctor to choose the treatment plan that is the best option for their specific situation. If you are currently discussing these decisions, your doctor may recommend proton therapy as part of your treatment.

Unfortunately, insurance companies sometimes prevent cancer patients from receiving the medical attention they need by denying coverage for proton therapy. Contact Kantor & Kantor, LLP if your proton therapy claim has been denied.

Send us a message or call (877) 783-8686 to contact the California proton therapy insurance claim denial attorneys at Kantor & Kantor, LLP.

What is Proton Therapy?

Proton therapy, otherwise known as proton beam therapy, is a type of radiation therapy used to treat cancer. This type of therapy is similar to the x-ray therapy that is traditionally used for cancer treatment, in that a machine is used to transfer radiation into the body. Unlike typical radiation therapy, which uses x-rays in the treatment process, proton therapy incorporates the use of protons to target cancerous cells.

Using a synchrotron or cyclotron machine, protons are sped up, creating energy that can be harnessed in the form of radiation beams that target tumors. When compared to x-ray treatment, there is less radiation that affects other, non-cancerous cells or continuously emits radiation as it is leaving the body. As a more targeted approach to cancer treatment, proton therapy produces less radiation-related side effects.

What to Do If Your Insurance Company Denies You Coverage

If proton therapy treatment has been suggested as a part of your cancer treatment course of action, your plans can be disrupted when your health insurance provider denies your claim. Sadly, this is an all-too-common occurrence that leaves many families feeling confused, hurt, and scared.

You deserve coverage for the cancer treatment you need. The proton therapy insurance denial attorneys at Kantor & Kantor, LLP will advocate for you!

  • I am so grateful for all your efforts and I'm sure glad you were on my side fighting for me.

    “Dear Alan - I just wanted to send you a special note of thanks for all your hard work on behalf of me and my case. I am so grateful for all your efforts and I'm sure glad you were on my side fighting for me.”

    Tracy R.

  • I won the appeal.

    “Hi Glenn- This is a very belated thank you for your generous assistance and advice last summer, when I was appealing UBH's decision for my son. I won the appeal, at least for care at the partial hospitalization level (they wouldn't budge on residential, but the facility was accepting the partial care reimbursement for residential treatment). But the appeal was a great moral victory, and I think it's a great thing to have in the record, just in case he needs to go for treatment again. Thanks again for your generous help, I was very grateful for it. Wishing you a most happy Thanksgiving.”

  • The arguments you made on our behalf at the mediation resulted in a more positive outcome for our case than we could have otherwise expected.

    “We appreciate that you found merit in our case, and that you were both willing and able to be present at the mediation. We believe that the arguments you made in our favor to the mediator were able to influence the outcome towards resolution that we could feel satisfied with. In the end, we believe that your counsel, your support, and the arguments you made on our behalf at the mediation resulted in a more positive outcome for our case than we could have otherwise expected. Throughout you were always professional, but direct and clearly firm on our position. We thank you for your efforts to resolve our dispute to our satisfaction, and wish you continued success.”
