    Health insurance issue

    Oh No

    I live in TX and am receiving SSI/Medicaid and am on the Texas Star Program - SUPERIOR Health Plan. Trying to get an appointment with MD Anderson Head And Neck Center but my authorization was denied so am in the process of trying to get it re-submitted by my new Primary Care Provider (Doctor McCaig). My problem is I am not able to talk very good especially over the phone. I don't have anyone who will make calls for me to help me get treatment. So I'm looking for some help. I have already had symptoms for 2 and a half yrs. and now am having trouble getting treatments set up. It is a race against time I am afraid and worried.
