Me and the pain management team are still in a tough battle with Cigna about getting my SCS approved. They are denying and we are appealing. They are not budging so far and will not cover neither trial or surgery since they consider it experimental and risky on a cervical level.
I know of an aquitance in NY who got hers approved for cervical, by Cigna, and I am curious to know if any of you here who has one, got yours under Cigna coverage as well?
