I-Team: Insurance company makes exception for prostate cancer patient

I-Team: Insurance company makes exception for prostate cancer patient

A great article on how a prostate cancer patient won battle against his insurance company for coverage on the CyberKnife treatment.  As indicated in the article, the FDA approved the CyberKnife treatment more than a decade ago.  Instead of undergoing 40 fractions of external radiation therapy or major surgery, CyberKnife only takes 4 treatment which offers a much more convenient and minimally invasive alternative for patients.  Unfortunately, we still occasionally get denials from the insurance companies.  Hopefully, they will soon recognize the benefits that CyberKnife offers and will make it available for all their patients.
