Did you encounter insurance problems while having treatment?

Have you experienced getting denied by your insurance for a medical service that your doctor prescribed? If yes, how did you appeal it? Last November 22nd, my medical oncologist said that I need to have a chest, abdomen, and pelvis CT scan. I got an appointment supposedly for today but had to cancel because insurance didn't approve it yet. My doctor had to call my insurance to do a physician-to-physician discussion so it can get approved, only to be notified that I can only have chest CT scan -- abdomen and pelvis scans were denied. Please let me know how you handled insurance issues. Thank you.
