I love AFLAC

Before I got cancer, I made sure I had an AFLAC cancer policy. They’ve been great, and I recommend that everyone who is planning on having cancer  enrolls in one of their plans before getting it.  The trouble is, you don’t know if/when you might get cancer, so you better just plan for it. Expect the worst and hope for the best, some say.

I filed my claim for 2008 a week or so ago and was really surprised when I received a check in the mail for $4600. Something wasn’t right.  It should have been $900. I’ve been filing these claims for years, so I knew a mistake had been made.  I picked up the phone and called AFLAC. They’re going to investigate it and will send a letter when they figure out what happened.  Wouldn’t it be nice if they said it was a reward for making it 6 years with myeloma?

What would you do?

AFLAC claims

The claims people at AFLAC are being real jerks. I have the AFLAC Cancer policy, and for a year now, I have been struggling with them to pay my claims for dexamethasone as chemo. Their policy states that dex, when taken orally at 40mg, qualifies as chemo. However, they have been denying the claim all this time. They pay it as anti-nausea meds. I have spoken to them and written to them. My hem/onc has written to them. They have told me to change the way I submit the claims, and that would resolve the problem. Nothing has worked. I’m still getting the runaround! If you have the AFLAC Cancer policy, and you have successfully filed a claim for dexamethasone as chemo, please let me know. This is beginning to smell like fraud to me!
