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 (818) 886-2525 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!

Client Testimonials

  • Thank you for all of your hard work, support and belief in our case.

    “Hi Elizabeth - You have been such an important part of my and Jennifer's past year, and I want to send you a note to wish you a wonderful holiday. Thank you for all of your hard work, support and belief in our case. Thank you seems like two small words and not enough, but they are heartfelt and mean so much.”

    J.H.

  • Thank you a zillion times for your patience and time and absolutely helpful information.

    “Thank you a zillion times for your patience and time and absolutely helpful information. You've helped me understand my position with my disability insurance and payments so much better. There is some real comfort in feeling anchored in knowledge…of what is and what might be in the future. Thanks to you!”

  • I've already mentioned your firm to my family and friends and how wonderful you have been treating me.

    “I've already mentioned your firm to my family and friends and how wonderful you have been treating me. Hopefully I will not ever have the need to refer someone to you because that would mean they would be in a similar situation as myself. But, if that were to ever happen, I would absolutely refer them to your company.”

  • There are no words that can express the feelings of gratitude and relief I have that you helped us.

    “I wanted to thank you again for all of your help. My daughter would not be in treatment without your help. I can never thank you enough, there are no words that can express the feelings of gratitude and relief I have that you helped us, and I believe saved my little girl. Taking her back to Timberline Knolls was very difficult in many ways, I wish UBH could know the damage they have done to her by having her go in and out like this. When she went into Timberline Knolls the first time she was not happy to go exactly, no one wants to go into treatment, but she was open to going in and ready, for the first time, to really look at her issues and work hard to get better. When she had to leave Timberline she expressed that she wished she could have stayed because she felt like she was finally at a place where she was getting better and, though it was hard, she was really opening up and dealing with her issues for the first time, something she has had a hard time doing. I just wanted you to know that she was going down to a really bad place and without you I don't know what would have happened except that she would not be at Timberline Knolls right now getting better and I thought you should know this. With unending gratitude.”
