Your response was exactly what I thought when I read it. And there are anymore. And the "easy?" about government sources is a misnomer. It is very difficult and time consuming and then when you finally get it, they constantly want you to complete another report or withdraw it with no communication at all. VA is very bad about this with their pension department. I really thought the medical help was excellent in our area (Iowa) but the Pension department in Minneapolis never responds or sends a letter that is dated a month earlier and the "deadline is tomorrow."

Spot on, @rmftucker I cannot count all the hours and hours and hours and hours and…. (you get the idea) I had to spend, I'd say waste, fighting denials of insurance, arguing with pharmacists who disagreed with my wife's physician over her care and medication regimens, and writing letters asking for a reviews of the insurance company's decisions!

It took me awhile before I finally came to peace with the fact 99% of my insurance submissions would be denied the first time around!
