Teeth removal for HPV cancer: how to get insurance for replacement?
I was told to have 6 compromised teeth removed for treatment of Head and Neck cancer. I was told it was to help accommodate robotic surgery to remove a tumor at the base of my tongue. Now I am being told it was for the radiation treatment I received after the surgery (2 weeks, 2x a day). I am trying to get medical insurance to cover replacement of these teeth. They paid for a temporary appliance. The dentist at Mayo said they won't pay for it. I want to at least try by sending in a pre-authorization. Bottom line, has anybody else had to deal with this situation and what, if any, suggestions might there be for getting through the red tape
