Patrick Hiles started this petition to David S. Wichmann and
I have severe Lymphedema and I’m badly in need of custom made compression stockings to manage my illness. The problem is that I cannot afford these own my own and my insurance, UnitedHealthcare, is being incredulously unhelpful. My Doctor has submitted paperwork of necessity to them at least five times and UHC has told me each time that they have not received said paperwork. When they eventually did get my paperwork, my claim was denied and I was told that my claim was denied to the fact that the company that I need to manufacture the stockings is out of network and that there in network companies that provide what I need. The problem with this is that I have gone through their approved list and each company on that list has told me in no uncertain terms that they cannot accommodate my needs. I’m in my second appeal now but UHC needs to understand that they cannot play games with the health needs of Lymphedema patients and that our needs are just as serious as any other chronic health condition! I’m also being denied transportation to my wound care appointments which is also a serious part of my Lymphedema treatment!

Give Lymphedema patients access to the products, services, and treatments that are needed!
