Thanks Jean for the information ...There is company's out there that will take your money...I am so glad that my insurance investigates all the procedures I go through to make sure they are for real !!! before I have them done...I have to get pre-approved for all my testing and they check every thing out first ...I am glad of that because there is people that wants to make a buck or two...and Untied Healthcare is on top on them....I have no testing done that my insurance dont know about....As strick as they are today about testing they check every avenue...
