    I work in the billing department of a radiology practice. I can tell you the leading cause as to why women don’t get an MRI–insurance companies won’t pay for it. Even if the study is pre-authorized, most insurances come back with a denial of ‘not medically necessary’.

     
    That’t the crazy thing about health insurers. They make you go through the pre-approval, and when you bill it with exactly the same codes used for the pre-approval, they still deny it.
    If they made me king, I would imprison insurance executives 3 days for every instance of that crap happening. Once you hit 90 days, we add a daily whipping.
