More than 40 percent of cervical cancer patients insurance claims are getting denied by their insurers. One of these patients was a young woman name Kate Weissman who survived cervical cancer with a relatively new treatment called proton therapy. This treatment cost 95,000 dollars and Kate Weissman did not have enough money at that time, so she filed an insurance claim and was denied. Her Insurance company, UnitedHealth said that there wasn’t enough feasible evidence that this treatment would be effective for her condition. It was, but they remained adamant even though 6 board certified surgical oncologists said this would be the best treatment for her. Instead, they trusted a woman who knew nothing of reproductive cancer and had legal issues in her own business so that they wouldn’t have to pay Kate. This happens to millions of people everyday.
Kat Weissman was lucky, she had her parents take money out of their retirement savings to help her, she had support but some people don’t have that.
