I now have a lawyer who works with a foundation sending in an appeal for me for the growth hormone i have been denied for a year. As an adult the growth hormone helps with bone hardening. As a child we all know it provides growth up. I have had so many spinal fractures, do not have osteoperosis and can only point to this hormone , which i am very deficient in. Yet Aetna can't see the big picture.
It was submitted last week, so now they will take their sweet time. The next step is with the state and an independent doctor.
