Unhappy Insurance won't cover Pulmonary Dr

While in the hospital for severe back and abdominal pain, (found out it was kidney stones), my Dr discovered a nodule in my right lung, middle lobe. He ordered a CT with contrast. Results came back, noncalcifed nodule. He wants to do repeat CT's every three months for a yr, but also said he really wanted to get a Pulmonary Dr to see me as well. I've had back pain ever since having hyperparathyrodism, (2001). I had surgery to correct this. Back pain continues, as well as pain under the ribcage, right side. Over the past year and half I've developed high blood pressure. I live in Ny state and have GHI family health plus, because of their "network" coverage, my Dr is having a hard time getting them to authorize a visit with the speacilist. Has anyone else had simular problems? I'm kinda anxious as to getting answers form a speacilist.

Re: Insurance won't cover Pulmonary Dr

There are other Pulmonologists who accept your type of insurance. Ask your doctor to find you one. If they aren't willing to put much effort into this, call your insurance company directly and ask them for a list of pulmonologists who participate in your area or surrounding areas.
