Seattle Proton Therapy Insurance Lawyers

Do Not Settle for Less When You Need Treatments

Proton therapy is a fairly common cancer treatment advised by doctors for patients who should not undergo traditional chemotherapy. Despite the increasing level of effectiveness it has for patients, insurance companies do not like to help policyholders pay for it. Instead, they prefer looking for excuses to deny claims and save their quarterly profits.

Are you struggling with cancer and cannot afford proton therapy? Has your insurance company denied your claim, halting your much-needed treatments? Kantor & Kantor, LLP wants to help you get proton therapy sessions to get healthy again. We have a team of Seattle proton therapy insurance claim attorneys who focus entirely on handling denied cases and appeals.


To see if we can help you with a denied proton therapy insurance claim, call us at (877) 783-8686.


Proton Therapy Methods & Costs

Sometimes called proton beam therapy, proton therapy uses radiation to target cancer cells in a patient’s body. Rapid-moving protons generate radiation energy that kills cancer before it can grow again, much like x-ray therapies. Unlike other types of beam-radiation cancer treatments, proton therapy creates a comparatively minimal risk of radiation-related side effects, making it more and more preferred by doctors and patients alike.

The equipment used to conduct proton therapy is expensive and rare to find, depending on where you live. Proton therapy sessions can cost much more than other forms of cancer treatments.Among other reasons, the insurance companies are denying pre-authorization for proton beam therapy because according to them, the therapy is “experimental and investigational,” and “not medically necessary.”

You need to be aware that your insurer could try to deny your claim citing the above reasons even when they do not apply. Insurance companies looking to escape their financial obligations to their policyholders might deny a claim without a valid reason, hoping that the issue is never brought up in an appeal or lawsuit. This is where our attorneys can step in for you.

Taking Legal Action After an Unjust Denial

Your doctor likely understands all of the benefits that proton therapy can bring you as someone fighting cancer, which is why they would recommend or prescribe it in the first place. An insurance claims adjuster or insurance company representative does not. When they decide to deny a proton therapy claim, they do not know just how much harm they are causing someone in need.

To show insurance companies the errors of their ways and challenge a denial, turn to our Seattle proton therapy insurance claim lawyers. Managing a denied case is a multistep procedure that can get all the more complicated if your insurer is insistent on protecting their profits. Leave everything up to us while you focus on your health and getting as much rest as you can.

Client Testimonials

  • First of all, I want to express my extreme gratitude for probably saving my daughter's life.

    “First of all, I want to express my extreme gratitude for probably saving my daughter's life. By staying in treatment, the improvement is remarkable. She had been in eating disorder facilities many times, and treatment had been interrupted repeatedly by Anthem Blue Cross's denying benefits. Many of the health professionals were telling me that maybe my daughter was a hopeless case. You both gave me hope. She is still struggling with some residual issues around eating, but the change in her attitude, her ability to assess her own recovery, and her wish to live instead of to die, is evident in her life. Now she is back in school, after years of having her education disrupted by the eating disorder. She goes places with friends, and even goes out to restaurants for fun! This year marked the first holiday season for many years, when she had not been in a treatment facility. Other people gave up and you didn't. I can't thank you enough. You took the action that was necessary to keep my daughter in treatment long enough for it to work.”

  • Your kindness will never be forgotten.

    “Dear Glenn, Several weeks ago, you graciously met with my husband and me and provided us with invaluable advice vis a vis his application for Long Term Disability and the Voluntary Transition Plan offered by his employer. Your calming presence and thoughtful guidance was so gratefully appreciated and we both felt much lighter as we left your office. We are pleased to advise you that David's application for LTD was approved the day after we met with you (sigh of relief)! Had it not been, we knew when were we would go for representation. We both want to thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity of spirit. Your kindness will never be forgotten. With Warmest Regards, Lori and David C.”
