United Healthcare Refuses to Pay for Life-Saving Treatment for Brain Swelling....Again

Here we go again, but I'm not going to wait 6 weeks again to die. United Healthcare has stopped paying and rescinding on bills paid.Time is of essence for approval.I woke up three years ago with my eye shut and my brain swollen.I sought treatment at the Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic.The medical plan was to do plasma, chemo, and eventually a stem cell transplant.But United Healthcare decided that all of that was deemed experimental, even though they paid other claims in the past for the same treatments.I can not afford the treatments on my own nevertheless the copay/coinsurance costs.The treatment is well over $8,000 per administration sometimes 5 days in a row.

I am a veteran, teacher, but most importantly I am a mom of a young child that needs me to be around for their birthdays,graduation, marriage, and life events.Why is it every time I meet the deductible, I am punished with non payment from United Healthcare? It is not ethically fair to base a life saving treatment- that the insurance paid for in the past, on the basis of experimental. A treatment that has allowed me to still be able to function as normal as I can Mayo Clinic is my primary care.But at this moment I have no care.United Healthcare refuses to pay anything to them for my medical care.

I want to live because dying is not an option. I want to receive the life-saving medical treatment that United Healthcare agreed to pay.I did my part, now make United Healthcare do their part.
