All this time I was told I had to pay for it in order to demonstrate a justifiable need- meaning if I need it this bad I would even pay for it.
And you'd think they'd pay attention to the requested bit of evidence, but that's not always the case. I haven't thought of the "tell them your theory" idea, but I might try it. That last bit is so irritating. We pay for insurance and expect them to do the job of covering what they say they'll cover. It certainly shouldn't be a matter of "if you need it that bad you'll pay for it". Kind of like the "if you can buy cigarettes you can buy your meds" argument. Very condescending, not to mention purposefully missing the point of the argument.
