I was recently told by my doctor that Cigna turned down his request for me to have a CT scan to find the restriction of blood flow in my body.
Cigna told him he would have to prove I was in danger of losing my legs if I didn’t have the test and that this is the policy under the new healthcare guidelines.
The fact that, for years, I have not been able to walk more that two blocks without experiencing great pain in both legs was of no importance.
I believe I’m among the first group over 60 who has come under the sights of the Obamacare “death panel.”
